(Trilliums at Reynolda Gardens in Winston-Salem, by Jon Roethling)
Jon Roethling, director of Reynolda Gardens of Wake Forest University, shares future plans for native focused initiatives at the century old gardens in Winston Salem, once part of the the home of business magnate R. J. Reynolds. (http://reynoldagardens.org/history/)
With 129 acres open to the public, the nature trails and gardens have long been an attraction for area residents. Several years ago a meadow project was begun, increasing the planting area for natives. The Gardens also include many other areas of native plants, and native plant sales are offered. Plans for invasive eradication are included in future endeavors.
Roethling has an extensive background in public horticulture and landscaping spanning nearly 30 years. At High Point University, where he was curator of the Mariana Qubein Botanical Gardens, he guided the establishment of several important plant collections, developed new garden spaces and led the renovation of nearly all existing campus gardens. Prior to his position there, Roethling was a research technician and horticulture assistant for several years at the JC Raulston Arboretum at North Carolina State University, his alma mater. He credits his time there as central to igniting his passion for public horticulture, and for establishing his extensive network of professional relationships in the field.Read More!
