Report From The 2021 washington state fair
Thank you again this year to Thuan Nguyen for coordinating the collection of plants and delivering them to two different shows at the Washington State Fair in Puyallup. He was assisted in this endeavor by his twin daughters Mai and Lan as well as his friend Vy Pham. Without them and their hours of dedication this would not have happened. In a fortunate coincidence some of the plants from the second show were also able to be displayed in our fall show at Volunteer Park, where Thuan kindly delivered them.
