Earlier today I learned that a respected
member of the gardening community in
Bloomington passed away recently.
Greg Speichert, who was the
Director of Hilltops Gardens at Indiana University,
passed away while at a conference in
Philadelphia last week.
If you recall,
I had the pleasure of hearing Mr. Speichert
speak at a University Club Luncheon
earlier this year.
His enthusiasm for gardening
and dedication to his job was evident
as he spoke.
He will be missed.
This piece, written by a friend of his,
puts it best.
Continue gardening, Greg.
