VCRS is pleased to welcome Dan Bifano as our speaker this month. Dan has a long list of ‘rose credentials’ including: Life member of the ARS, master consulting rosarian (ARS), Horticultural and Arrangement Judge (ARS), Past Treasurer of the Pacific Southwest District (ARS), Past Chairman of the Pacific Southwest District Prizes and Awards (ARS), Convention Chairman for 1989 and 1999 Conventions (ARS), Curator of the A.C. Postel Memorial Rose Garden in Santa Barbara from 1984 until now. He’s the recipient of the ARS Silver Honor Medal, the PSWD Outstanding Judge in Horticulture Award, the PSWD Outstanding Judge in Arrangements Award, and the ARS Bronze Medal. Whew!
To cap that off, Dan also designed and installed the garden for Oprah Winfrey in Montecito AND for Barbra Streisand. For those two stars, he also was involved in the creation and naming of the roses chosen for their gardens. For Oprah, it was “The Legends” and for Barbra it was “The Barbra Streisand Rose”. We will look forward to his talk on Thursday, March 23.
