Nature's Best Kept Secret - Alexander von Humboldt

Christan Summers - owner of Tula House in Brooklyn. Join us for this fascinating talk about Alexander von Humboldt - a Prussian naturalist, artist, explorer and geographer. He served as inspiration to both Charles Darwin and John Muir. We will learn of von Humboldt's travels through South America and the impact he had on nature and the science of plants. Our speaker, Christan Summers, is a self-taught horticulturist with an MBA in business and marketing. She has lived in Paris and Bangkok, sold flowers on Martha’s Vineyard, swum with sharks, and worked in the worlds of jewelry, e-commerce and advertising. She founded Tula in 2016. Christan will have plants from Tula for sale after the GardenTalk.
