"We're excited about meeting in such a beautiful location that gives attendees a chance to tour the gardens after our lunch," said Patrick Higgins, Friends of Fakahatchee president. "We hope the new time will encourage our members and the public to participate as we kick off our new season."


The luncheon speaker is Nick Ewy, associate director of horticulture for the garden.

He is working towards conserving several of Florida’s native orchids through propagation and re-introduction studies.
