Re: Bennington Flower Show


This is the second year of the Tropical Flower Show.  It is held at the
Southwest Vermont Career Development Center in Bennington, Vermont.  To get
here take Route 9 west from Brattleboro Vermont,  We are 40 miles from
Brattleboro.  In the Center of Bennington Route 9 intersects with Route 7. 
Take a right.  At the next Stoplight take a right.  Go past Bennington
Potters and at the next light turn left.  Take the first driveway on the
right and the parking lot is on your right the Career Development Center is
on your left.

This year's show is featuring the aroid plants that were given to the New
England Tropical Conservatory by the Missouri Botanical Garden.  We also
have the university of Vermont Plant Science Department here, Vermont Tech
and Cobleskill college.  The Capital district African Violet society will
be here and the Buxton Branch of the American Begonia Society will be here.
 There will be vendors selling plants from around New England.  Last year
we had 400 highschool and elementary students and 500 paying adults at the

WE will also have an exhibit in the New England Flower Show in Boston.

The Conservatory is about 4 years away from initial construction.  They are
going to rent a greenhouse in Bennington this Spring and the collection
will move from the school to the Conservatory then.  It will eventually be
on Route Nine west of Bennington Center.
