To show our appreciation for our colleagues at the Arboretum, FONA hosted a BBQ this week for Arboretum staff, volunteers, and stakeholders.
FONA Executive Director Craven Rand is a native North Carolinian and BBQ aficionado. He and a few other volunteers manned smoker trailers at the Arboretum from Monday afternoon into Tuesday afternoon. They made 200 pounds of home-smoked pulled pork, beef short ribs, turkey, sausages, and vegetables, all of which were quickly devoured by the guests.
We appreciate all who work hard to drive the Arboretum's research mission and who make the grounds a special place to visit!
