I have very few heroes: L.H. Bailey, the father of modern horticulture, Rachel Carson, the author of Silent Spring, and one more. Dr. Peter Del Tredici is a Senior Research Scientist Emeritus at Harvard University whose writings on native and exotic plants were perspective changing for me while I was a young professor at the University of Minnesota. Since I came South I have continued to read and be fascinated by Dr. Del Tredici’s work. I am extremely proud and excited that this researcher who was such an important part of my young career has accepted our invitation to come and speak at our Urban Roots Symposium this year.
Come, listen, and be prepared to see the exotic and native discussion in a way that you may never have considered before. To find out more about Dr. Del Tredici as well as the other wonderful speakers who will be participating in this year’s symposium please check out our symposium page at:
Early Bird Registration for the Symposium ends December 22!
