We are honored to have Jolene Adams, President of the American Rose Society (ARS), present a lively talk about Roses and Animals of South Africa. Jolene will present highlights and photos from her trip to the World Rose Society Convention in South Africa.
Jolene fell in love with roses as a teenager and hasn't gotten over it. Jolene grows over 150 roses of all types - Climbers, OGRs, Minis and Minifloras, Hybrid Teas, Grandifloras, Floribundas, Polyanthas, Austins, Romanticas, Modern and Classic Shrubs. She lectures widely on computing issues, general gardening topics and on roses. Jolene became ARS President at the Fall 2012 ARS Convention.
