PRESENTER FOR MAY: Jeremy Spath: Exceptional Succulent Plants in South African Habitat
Jeremy will be speaking on his recent trip to South Africa. His photographs are exceptional. He may also bring a few plants to sell. (More details may follow later)
Jeremy began his plant career nearly ten years ago at the San Diego Botanic Gardens in Encinitas, CA. While at the gardens he was exposed to many different plant groups but was most attracted to succulents, cycads, bromeliads, palms and bamboos – which one docent at the gardens once amusingly referred to as man plants. While at the garden, Jeremy felt an urge to travel into the field to study the plants he loved to grow and has been hooked ever since the first trip. To him,seeing plants in the wild felt like meeting old friends for the first time.
Jeremy left the botanic gardens to launch his landscape design company, Spath Landscape Design. Additionally, Jeremy works part time for Rancho Soledad Nursery in Rancho Santa Fe, CA overseeing seed propagation and succulent hybridization.
Jeremy Spath spends most of his days working with plants, but is happiest in the field, since to him, nature is truly the best landscaper.
