Al Palacio, Garden Designer

Speaking on

The Glory of Begonias: Their Culture and Variety

Mr. Palacio is the past president of the Westchester Begonia Society. He is interested in begonias, gesneriads and many other types of plants. Additionally, he does garden designs and has a business which focuses on making interesting antiqued potting containers.
He will provide an overview of the plants which comprise the begonia family.


The Pacific Palisades Garden Club, a nonprofit organization founded in 1944, attracts people living in the Westside communities of the Los Angeles area who enjoy gardening and also like spending time with other gardeners. Its large membership enables it to offer numerous activities unavailable to smaller garden groups.

The Club's sociable monthly meetings, open free to the public, feature speakers who present informative programs on a wide variety of garden-connected topics. Its members are regularly invited to visit local private gardens, and twice a year they can take special daylong tours via chartered bus to prominent public garden sites, garden shows, and special nurseries in outlying areas.

PPGC's Spring Garden Tour is a popular event, and the income it generates helps this charitable organization to support worthy local educational, beautification, and conservation efforts involved in some way with the plant kingdom.
