NACOGDOCHES, Texas — Stephen F. Austin State University’s SFA Gardens will host the monthly Theresa and Les Reeves Lecture Series at 7 p.m. June 8 in the Brundrett Conservation Education Building at the Pineywoods Native Plant Center.

Jim Berry, owner and president of J Berry Nursery in Grand Saline, will present “Looking back and looking forward: Our recipe for introducing new plants that make a difference."

Berry started J Berry Nursery along with his son, Jonathan, in 2006. Before that, he worked in the horticulture industry for 30 years in Texas and Alabama, garnering a reputation around the world as an innovator, grower, breeder, propagator and industry expert. He has held memberships in many state, regional, national and international associations and societies during his career.

Berry credits his success to hard work and surrounding himself with many talented professionals for over 50 years. He graduated from Texas A&M University in 1970 with a Bachelor of Science in horticulture science.

The Theresa and Les Reeves Lecture Series is held the second Thursday of each month and includes a rare plant raffle after the program. The lecture is free and open to the public, but donations to the lecture series fund are always appreciated.
