Unique Places To Save Hosts Perennial Plant Association Luncheon, Tours
On Monday, July 30, Unique Places To Save welcomed members of the Perennial Plant Association (PPA) for a special day at Honeysuckle Farm and Keith Arboretum.
The Perennial Plant Association, based near Chicago, is a trade organization for a trade organization for growers, retailers, landscape designers, and educators involved in the herbaceous perennial industry. The organization held its annual symposium in Raleigh from July 30-August 3.
Nearly 100 members of the PPA joined the teams from Unique Places To Save, Honeysuckle Farm, and Honeysuckle Tea House for a catered lunch paired with a couple of exclusive Honeysuckle Tea House teas (lemon verbena lavender and tulsi peppermint). After lunch, the PPA members toured Honeysuckle Farm’s mid-harvest elderberry, blueberry, and herb fields before venturing to the enchanted forest of Keith Arboretum, home to one of the nation’s largest collection of temperate woody species from around the world.
“It’s such an honor to host members of a national horticultural organization such as the Perennial Plant Association and showcase our properties for them. When professionals of their caliber express their appreciation for our approach to stewardship of these community assets, it affirms for us that we are on the right path. ” said Unique Places To Save Executive Director David Harper. “We enjoy walking the land with people who know plants so well, and sharing the fruits of the land with them as we do with our community at Honeysuckle Tea House.”
