Garden Clubs 

Among the more popular groups that Dr Bez gives presentations too are garden clubs throughout the United States and internationally.

His knowledge of the flora of the lands of the Bible combined with his humorous and whitty style make him a favor among the "ladies of the lilies", as he often called them.

He topics are chosen carefully for each club. He always leaves the members and guests more knowledgeable and appreciative of the role of flowers, herbs/spices, fruits, grains, scrubs and trees in the Bible.

Senior Adult Life Enrichment Seminars


Life Enrichment Seminars (LES) are specially designed classes aimed at capturing the attention and nuturing the interest of senior adults. The seminars range in length from a one-hour class to a four-week series.

The gift of relating to seniors and enjoying teaching them is obvious to those who have attended seminars conducted by Dr. Bez.  He includes everyone in class discussions and values each enrollee.

Seminars usually have class handouts, notebooks, hands-on projects, and day trips to interesting and educational places; museums, gardens, universities and college, movies, stage plays, and dramas.

Life Enrichment Seminars are affordable and enjoyable. Four week series have mini-graduations with certificates for each enrollee.

Children and Youth Educational Programs

Educating and engaging the next generation of gardeners, archaeologists, and sciemtists is a primary goal for BBGS. Many exciting programs have been designed with youth in mind; everything from mums to mummies, bees to Bay Laurel, and worms and wormwood. Youngsters enjoy all of the programs and often ask that we return agaian and again. Contact our office to schedule a visit.
