Pandora, Pockets and a Gala in the Garden
The San Diego Botanic Garden recently held their annual Gala in the Garden to honor the person responsible for bringing authenticity and realism to the extra-terrestrial flora found on Pandora in James Cameron’s blockbuster film Avatar. Botanist Dr. Jodie Holt received the Paul Ecke Jr. Award of Excellence for her work as botanical consultant on the film and for her ongoing work promoting the beauty of nature and educating the public.
Our good friends at Olive Hill Greenhouses had the brilliant idea to use our Woolly Pocket frames on wheels to decorate the Open Air Pavilion at the garden. They used a plethora of their amazing indoor plants to create an otherworldly environment of greenery with splashes of colorful bromeliads! Artistic Director René van Rems added his gemlike table pieces to complete the effect!
Congratulations Dr Holt and thank you for spreading your infectious love for and admiration of plants so far and wide!
