Travelogue: IPPS International Tour


The Southern Region of the International Plant Propagators’ Society (IPPS) is hosting the international board.  Dr. Patricia Knight, Department Head of Coastal Research and Extension Center, is the current President.  Therefore, it is our pleasure to host the Board for a tour of nurseries and cultural attractions along the Gulf Coast.  Our tour starts in New Orleans and ends at the Southern Region meeting in Tampa!  Participants will begin coming in tomorrow from China, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, England, South Africa, and elsewhere.


Stay tuned to follow us on our adventures!GEO_Globe
