Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico - The Puerto Vallarta Garden Club supports not only a more beautiful, clean and verdant city, but is making it more attractive to tourism, thus creating a vibrant economy to support all the other great causes in Puerto Vallarta. Here's the latest news from the PVGC.
Dear Members and Friends,
Please join us online or in person on January 19 at 4:30 CST for our membership presentation featuring Ethnobotanist, Emrys Stromberg.
Ethnobotany is a branch of botany that studies the relationship of people and plants. Emrys has worked at some of the finest botanical institutions, including the New York Botanical Garden, and he has performed ethnobotanical fieldwork in Cuba, Thailand, and Mexico.
His present work explores the many uses of plants for medicinal, nutritional, and spiritual purposes by the Huichol indigenous peoples of Mexico. This work began in February 2020. Emrys currently lives in Zacatecas and engages with the Huichol community in Huejuquilla.
Our great friends at Incanto are helping us stream this meeting from the piano bar. You can join from anywhere... just go to the Incanto Facebook page and choose "Like and Follow". When the stream starts (think Garden Club TV) you'll see a notice to click and join. At that point you will be able to see the presentation. Facebook is the only format available to us.
Tracy has opened the club to guests, so if you are in PV, drop by for a refreshment on the patio starting at 3:30. We'll move upstairs for the meeting about 4:20. Limit is 25 masked and separated garden lovers.
If you are watching from home, make your own refreshment and toast with us. You can leave a tip of support for their AV staff and bartenders via PayPal. Instructions will be on the screen.
