The San Dieguito Heritage Museum is collecting flower growing history for a special event — “Sit, Chat and Remember” to be held Sunday, June 26, from noon-3 p.m. at San Dieguito Heritage Museum, 450 Quail Gardens Dr. Encinitas, 92024.
Old growers, new growers, wholesalers, suppliers. Anyone connected to the great floral industry is welcome.
The Museum has an ongoing project to capture the stories and the history of the many growers in the North County area and beyond.
The Sit, Chat and Remember session is an important part adding the human interest bits and pieces of horticultural heritage by bringing to life the flower and plant growers of the past as well as showcasing the many that are still here and thriving. These stories will be preserved by video, photographs and audio on the cloud forever. A major exhibit is planned along with a symposium in October. Bring old pictures and memories and get ready for a great afternoon.
The event is free but reservations are requested for good planning. Reply to Evelyn Weidner Evelyn@weidners.com or San Diego Heritage Museum at 760-632-9711.
