It is with sadness, that I share the passing of Camellia Forest Nursery founder, Kai Mei Parks, who just passed away from pancreatic cancer, diagnosed only last week. I’ll always treasure my early visits to the 35-year old Camellia Forest when it was a one woman operation, and how delightful Kai Mai was to chat with. She was a strong-willed workaholic, without whom we wouldn’t have this nursery treasure today. Camellia Forest has been managed by her son David for the last decade plus, but you could still find Kai Mei pulling orders almost until the end. Please share with us in a big PDN salute to this amazing lady!
