MEETING REPORT: Nan Sterman, Horticulturist of the Year, January 2021


What a wonderful evening it was with our first ever packed Zoom meeting house as Nan Sterman received the San Diego Horticulturist of the Year award for 2021.


She received a gift basket prior to the meeting with a one-of-a-kind wood turned bowl made for her from local olive wood by none other than our Treasurer, Ray Brooks. The basket also contained a 2021 Diary calendar to record her honored year, a lovely potted orchid and a pair of Felco pruners complete with leather carrying sheath. Additionally, she received a life-time membership to the SDHS.

After the awards portion of the meeting, Nan, The Waterwise Gardener, presented "Gardens that Inspire Her!" The presentation of her favorite inspirational gardens ranged from around the world, around the state and around the county and is available for viewing online on the San Diego Horticultural Society's YouTube channel where it can be seen anytime and as many times as you wish to be inspired.


What a truly positive way to start the year.
