  • Pine needles line courses in Brunswick County

    One of the many benefits to getting older is having adult children. Gene and I can share in our four daughters’ careers, families, achievements, joys and sorrows.

    These are fellow human beings, miraculously emancipated from the nest and living on their own, yet they are tied to us in a lifelong bond of love and concern and (yes!) fun.

    Our oldest daughter Karen is a landscape designer in Richmond, Va. A few weeks before Christmas, she called and asked me to attend the Mid-Atlantic Nursery Trade Show in Baltimore in January.

  • Brunswick Community College turf program growing more than grass

    I’ve been hearing good things about the turfgrass management program at Brunswick Community College.

    So last Friday, I drove to Supply and spent the morning with Dean Bennett, director of the horticulture and turfgrass management program, and Jace Myers, an instructor in the program.

    These are two nifty young men who are enthusiastic about both the expansion of Brunswick Community College and their role in growing the horticulture and turfgrass program there.
