PLANT “NERD” NIGHT
by Rich Baer
For plant lovers there is a date that you should add to your calendars. On this night Mike invites the proprietors of a number of local nurseries to present for 12 minutes about some often unique plant materials. The presentations are accompanied by a power point presentation, so you will get to see what they are talking about even if some of the speakers tend to speak in Latin. Your editor, Rich, gets to join the party as the media person in charge of the projection equipment. As you probably know already, events with Mike Darcy are usually a lot of fun, and this has been no exception. Be prepared to share your evening with a lot of other plant lovers; the average crowd has been over 400. The highlight of “Nerd Night”, besides the unique entertainment that has to be experienced, is that the plants that are discussed are available for sale before and after the presentations. The date is Friday, March 1th at 6pm. (presentations begin at 7pm). The location is Lake Bible Church, 4565 Carman Drive, Lake Oswego. Each year I see more friends from the Portland Rose Society attending this event and you should enjoy it too. This is a free event, so come out and enjoy the fun.
