Our speaker TUESDAY will be Ken Lain from Watters Garden Center on 

Gardening with Gophers and Deer

     Ken Lain is a member of Prescott Frontier Rotary and has been gardening for decades throughout the highlands of Arizona. He has grown thousands of plants in his own gardens and killed a good many along the way. He writes from experience and keeps skills honed by working with new homeowners through the family garden center, identifying plants and problems, and helping friends become confident gardeners.

EXPERIENCE
Ken is the owner of Watters Garden Center, a retail nursery in Prescott, Arizona. He’s a longtime master gardener, certified nursery professional and winner of the prestigious Revolutionary 100 by Garden Center Magazines.
He co-host a radio show ,The Mountain Gardeners, with his garden bride of 27 years, Lisa Watters Lain.   Their local garden advice is broadcast throughout Arizona with radio stations broadcasting from Prescott, to the river country, all the way to the White Mountains.
 
Ken is a long time member of the Garden Writers Association.  His writing has been featured in newspapers and magazines nationwide, with interviews for National Public Radio, numerous articles, blogs and columns.
 
His new book, “The Complete Guide to Mountain Fruit Trees” is a year round resource based on hands-in-the-dirt experience, a wealth of skill building tutorials and fruit varieties specific to mountain gardening.
 
Ken’s first book, “Natives and the Low Maintenance Landscape Book”  highlights some of his favorite easy to grow natives off grid to most highland gardeners, and how to take care of these gardens without the hassle.  Gardening with less weeds, less water and less care is within reach of local gardeners.

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
Member interview: Writer sheds light on FDR’s right-hand woman
Battling breast cancer in 2000, Kathryn Smith found comfort pursuing her lifelong interest in Franklin D. Roosevelt. The more she read, the more intrigued she became with the 32nd U.S. president’s private secretary, Marguerite Alice “Missy” LeHand. “I thought, what a fascinating life she had because she was by his side through the polio crisis, establishing the polio rehabilitation center in Warm Springs and then after his return to politics,” she says. Smith, a past president of the Rotary Club of Greater Anderson, S.C., and a longtime newspaper journalist, turned that curiosity into a book...
The Rotarian Conversation with Ban Ki-moon
One of United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s earliest memories is of fleeing with his family into the mountains during the Korean War, his village burning behind him. His father and grandfather had to forage for food in the woods; his mother gave birth to his siblings away from anything remotely resembling a health facility. “I have known hunger,” he says. “I have known war, and I have known what it means to be forced to flee conflict.” The soldiers who came to their rescue were flying the blue flag of the United Nations. The UN provided them with food and their schools with books....
Culture: Life in the bike lane
Like a lot of us, I spent much of my childhood riding bikes, but fell out of the habit for a while. Forty years. Then my wife and I moved to New York, where cyclists risk their necks in a daily Thunderdome of cabs, police cars, firetrucks, double-decker buses, messengers on motorbikes, and delivery trucks backing around corners at 20 miles an hour. Not for me! At least not until my 50th birthday, when my metabolic furnace flamed out. Calories started going directly from beer bottle to beer belly. It was time to start exercising. Either that or give up Samuel Adams, and I couldn’t do that to...
