Meet Our Officers
Since retiring from the Agronomy Dept. of the University of Maryland, Joe Buriel has occupied himself with weaving, spinning, and working in his garden. As a longtime member of the Hyattsville Horticultural Society, he has come to appreciate the unique character and charm of the city, both in its architectural diversity and in its appreciation for the urban environment.
According to my father, I come from a long line of "farmers, teachers and crackpots," and I believe my alter ego "Miss Floribunda" is the personification of all three. My passion for flowers was evident at a very early age, although interest in gardening itself came rather later.
