Re: OSIS Meeting Notice and Invitation


Wonderful, Bill! Can someone videotape it or camcord it for us? I have 
Passalong Plants and I simply love it.

|
| Felder Rushing is a 10th-generation Southern gardener who shares a 
cluttered
| cottage garden in Jackson, Mississippi, with his wife and long time best
| friend Terryl, and children, Ira and Zoe, plus lots of wildflowers, 
critters, and
| "yard art." His garden has been featured in Garden Design, Southern 
Living,
| National Wildflower Research Journal, House and Garden, Landscape 
Architecture,
| and others.
|
| Rushing, a Masters graduate of Mississippi State University, retired as 
his
| state's consumer horticulturist with the Extension Service. He writes two
| weekly columns for the state-wide Clarion Ledger and twice monthly for the 
Memphis
| Commercial Appeal, and hosts a live, call-in radio program every Tuesday
| morning on Mississippi Public Broadcasting (NPR affiliate), with co-host 
Dr.Dirt.
| He has appeared on the Discovery Channel, HGTV, ETV, and has taken a TV 
crew to
| European gardens.
|
| Rushing, a contributing editor for Horticulture Magazine, has written and
| photographed for Garden Design, Fine Gardening, National Geographic, 
Better Homes
| and Gardens, American Homestyle, Country Living Gardener, National 
Gardening,
| Garden Design, Old House Journal, Organic Gardening, Brooklyn Botanic 
Garden
| Record, and many more.
|
| His 14 gardening books include the award-winning Passalong Plants (honored 
in
| 1994 by the Garden Writers Association as the "best written" garden book 
in
| the country), Taylor's Guide to Landscaping in the South, Rodale Press 
Great
| Garden Shortcuts, Scarecrows, the Better Homes and Gardens Junior 
Gardening
| Book, Can't Miss Container Gardening, and a Tough Plants series for the 
South,
| North, and Florida. He also contributed to the Encyclopedia of Southern 
Culture.
|
| Rushing is a national board member of the American Horticulture Society,
| advisor to the National Youth Gardening Association, and honorary member 
of the
| Garden Clubs of Mississippi. He lectures widely from coast to coast, 
including
| at Longwood Gardens, Carmel Flower Show, Williamsburg Symposium, 
Philadelphia
| Flower Show, Long Island Horticulture Society, Disney's Festival of 
Flowers,
| Atlanta Flower Show, National Wildflower Research Center, the Smithsonian
| Institute, Southern California Horticulture Society, and many more (he's 
even "done"
| the Texas Rose Rustlers).
|
| His off-beat garden concepts have been used in several garden shows around
| the country, including the top award-winning design at the 1997 
Philadelphia
| Flower Show, and the Smithsonian Institute Folk Festival in Washington, 
D.C. He
| also helped design the Children's Garden at Disney's Epcot Center in 
Orlando,
| and the 3,000 square foot butterfly house at the Jackson Zoo.
|
| Understanding that many gardeners feel intimidated by a crush of how-to 
books
| and experts ("We are daunted, not dumb," he says), Rushing delivers
| bottom-line points with a down-home style rife with humor, zany metaphors, 
and
| real-life anecdotes.
