Dr. Ari Novy is an award winning, nationally recognized plant biologist and researcher and is the President and CEO of the San Diego Botanic Garden. Previously, he was the Executive Director of the United States Botanic Garden. After graduating from college in 2000, he decided to live in Italy for a while to burnish his Italian, his major at New York University. He volunteered as a gardener at a villa and ran a student gardening group, both new experiences for him. When he returned from Florence, he was determined to learn everything about plants and flowers, and ultimately received a Ph.D. in plant science at the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences at Rutgers University. His primary goal is to inspire people to connect with plants and nature. $5 members/$15 non-members.
