Bringing New Palms to Local Cultivation

palm tree class


Jeff Marcus, owner of Floribunda Palms in Kurtistown, has one of the largest private palm collections in the world with over 850+ species in the ground. His collection is for use in seed collection for both his business and conservation. His talk focuses on different species of palms that should and could be introduced to the private grower.

Discover how you, the homeowner, can play a roll saving palms from extinction. There are more than just coconuts in the palm world!

Please attend and learn about new, rare palms species that need custodians to save them and help them thrive for future generations to enjoy.
