SEC/ABS Annual Meeting and Grove Cleanup

Post by Tracy »

The Southeast Chapter of ABS is hosting our annual meeting and grove cleanup at the Historic Bamboo Farm and Coastal Gardens in Savannah, GA, on February 12, 2011. We will continue our ongoing efforts to revitalize the historic groves at BFCG. Participants in the grove grooming will be allowed to take home poles cut during the grooming process. Daphne Lewis, author of Farming Bamboo, will also give a short talk on farming bamboo for edible shoots and may also demonstrate shoot harvesting/preparation if we are able to find any early shooting bamboos at that time. The day will also include a fund-raising live plant auction featuring bamboos donated by SEC members. Attendance is free and open to the public. Meet at the BFCG conference center at 8:30AM. For more info and directions to BFCG, visit or contact Tracy at .
