On the second Thursday of each month, we invite speakers to present a talk or program about their area of expertise. Admission is free for members, children, and students with ID, and $5 for non-members. Meetings also include expert discussion of plants brought in to the Plant Forum table, and we often have Plant Raffles. Plants, used and new books and magazines are usually for sale at the meetings. For more information about the Society, please see our About SCHS page.
Coming to present a lively lecture at the Southern California Horticultural Society's festive December meeting will be Marie Barnidge-McIntyre, Horticulturist at Rancho Los Cerritos Historic Site. She will speak about the traditional plants used to decorate homes for the Christmas holidays, what cultures influenced these choices, how they evolved and what legends are associated with each species. Regardless of which seasonal holiday you celebrate, hearing about the history of these decorations will no doubt enhance your appreciation for the plants that are an integral part of the winter holidays.
The SCHS looks forward to hearing some of Marie’s stories and learning how we might incorporate age-old plant-based traditions into our own contemporary holiday celebrations. Please join us for a fun and entertaining evening!
