Jan. 15th:    Bernardo Gardeners Club Meeting
                                Guest Speaker:  Joe Walker
              
                                 
                           Joe and "Suki" displayed on Obraverdeflowers.com                                 
                            Founded in 1974 by Joe and Julie Walker,
                            Obra Verde Growers are located in Valley
                            Center, CA.  Obra, a Spanish word with a
                            triple meaning, is defined as work, product
                            and virtue. Verde is also a Spanish word
                            meaning green.  Obra Verde Growers began
                            with a few varieties of waxflower that were
                            being commercially grown in the area.
                            Sensing the need for a propagator of wax-
                            flower and other interesting cultivars, Obra
                            Verde seized the opportunity and began to
                            dig its niche. Over the last 30 years, Obra
                            Verde has expanded its operation to over
                            100 varieties of mostly Australian, New
                            Zealand and South African species.  Joe will
                            explain how we can grow these varieties
                            with adjustments to our soil.
