The state of the floral industry was the topic of the Ellison International Floriculture Chair Distinguished Lecture Series held recently in College Station, featuring guest speaker Drew Gruenberg, chief operating officer for the Society of American Florists, SAF.
Charlie Hall, Ph.D., professor and Ellison Chair in International Floriculture for Texas A&M College of Agriculture and Life Sciences’ Department of Horticulture and coordinator for the event, welcomed Gruenberg as someone who has had a major impact on the floral industry.
