This year’s 7th Annual Root Ball, held at The Museum in Midtown Centre in St. Nicholas followed a morning of successful sales at the 27th Annual Flowering Tree Sale. Late Bloomer Garden Club members Judi Hardwick and Marcia Simmons co-chaired the 2014 ball alongside Greenscape President Bob Chabot.
The group took time out to thank the Honorary Chairmen Jennifer and Joe Duke, who are both equally active in the preservation and cultivation of future generations of Florida’s great outdoors.  Joseph Duke, a 3rd generation Floridian is the current Chairman of the Board of Directors of Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute in Fort Pierce and is also a director of The Everglades Foundation in Miami. His wife, Jennifer Johnson Duke, has had a lifelong interest in the arts and the environment. Owner of the J. Johnson Gallery in Jacksonville Beach, she has a passion for photography, the arts and has served on the Board of the Nature Conservancy of Florida. She presently serves on the Board of the Florida Audubon Society and is the current Director of the River Branch Foundation. She and her husband continue to support wilderness acquisition and protection in Florida.
