About the speaker: Rolfe Jaremus
Rolfe is a Woodridge resident who owns a 60-acre grain farm in East Central Illinois where he planted over 500 trees and bushes of all kinds from dwarf fruit & nut trees to towering White Pines, Chestnuts and Oaks. In the process he learned a great deal about growing trees in harsh open, windy, dry conditions. Rolfe has been actively gardening (vegetable & flower) for over 60 years and runs the Spring Garden Club Plant Sale.
