Jon was an excellent host at our first event this year - despite the warm evening we got to meet some new members and catch up with current ones. There are some new plants out there that you should check out and he has some bottles ready to put together your own (with their help if you would like) terrariums complete with a solar powered cork light - they are pretty cool and would be a unique table center piece or gift for someone with or without a green thumb.
