Retired LSU AgCenter extension agent to be SFA Gardens’ August lecture series speaker

NACOGDOCHES, Texas ­— Stephen F. Austin State University’s SFA Gardens will host the monthly Theresa and Les Reeves Lecture Series at 7 p.m. Aug. 10 in the Brundrett Conservation Education Building at the Pineywoods Native Plant Center.

Denyse Cummins, retired extension horticulture agent from the Louisiana State University AgCenter, will present “All About Bulbs.”

Cummins, who lives in Shreveport, Louisiana, is a lecturer for the Louisiana Farm to School Program. She also has been a commercial cut flower grower, a botanical illustrator and an indigo dyer.

“I’ve been a lifelong lover of bulbs since age 9, when the first pink surprise lily popped up in my family’s new garden,” Cummins said.

The Theresa and Les Reeves Lecture Series is held the second Thursday of each month and includes a rare plant raffle after the program. The lecture is free and open to the public, but donations to the lecture series fund are always appreciated.
