Our speaker this month is Dr. Ann (Anke) McMullian, professor and department chair at the Agricultural Department of Indian River State College, Pruitt campus in PSL. She grew up in Brazil and is knowledgeable in tropical fruits.
Anke will speak about horticultural education at IRSC, their teaching garden, and the types of training programs we might be interested in. In addition, she will offer practical advice on how we can grow our gardens better–common mistakes and how to correct them–what is easiest to grow vs. what requires more skill and is best left to experienced horticulturists.
At IRSC Dr. McMullian counsels agriculture and horticulture students, oversees all Agriculture programs including the Aquaculture program, and teaches a variety of Horticulture and Biology classes.
