THE 15TH MEIS CONFERENCE IN BRNO, 24-05.05.2013
A group of thirteen retirees from association in Kolonowskie accompanied Mr Robert Piątek in the 15th Meis Conference in Brno. During the tour seniors visited the botanical gardens and the arboretum situated in the gardens of Mendel University in Brno. In greenhouses they admired tropical orchids from the territory of Central and South America and also orchids from Southeast Asia. Great interest among the visitors aroused iris flowers – they are unique. Each participant could buy these plants and have them in private garden.
The garden, that was visited by retirees, is mainly used for teaching students of Mendel University and other schools. It has been cooperating with Middle-European Iris Society since many years. It is open to the public only five times a year.
