Our annual Christmas party at Harriett Wright's amazing home is something you don't want to miss!
Her collections from a lifetime of travels around the world make for an intriguing venue for our Christmas celebration. Harriett is the only person I know that has a mangrove growing in her backyard pond and she is not even close to the ocean.
Join us while we celebrate another incredible year for the Suncoast Native Plant Society. This is a potluck so bring your favorite dish to share. We will be providing turkey, ham and sodas.
Plan to spend the evening visiting with friends old and new. We look forward to seeing you there! (FNPS members only)
