Russell Coker


Thanks to Russell for his latest workshop visit. Enjoyed it as always.


Juan Andrade

Visited us in March 2018

It was a very good workshop with Juan. This was his first time to be on the Florida tour (at least the first time to come into Northwest Florida).

The responses from our members have been very complimentary and we will have him back again at the first opportunity.

Ted Matson

What a treat to have Ted with us again. 

If I only had a recording of all he said.

We had tiny pots of lovely mame trees from Lee, to trees taller than any of us from Charles.  A workshop with Ted is always an education.  Thanks to all who came and brought trees.

We will miss having Ted for programs.  His schedule in California at the Huntington Collection is taking all his time

Thanks to all who brought trees and thank you, Ted Matson.  This was Ted’s last pass through Florida as a traveling teacher.  We will miss his teaching.
