and 10 a.m. on The Bay Area's KRON Channel 4. Visit his website

Institute for Aloe Studies
Institute for Aloe Studies was formed for two reasons; the propagation
and conservation of Aloes, and the study of Aloes and the education
of the general public about Aloes.
Conservation of Aloes will be accomplished by offering domestically
produced plants and by encouraging the establishment of reserves
and protection of habitat. The benefits of offering domestically
produced plants were mentioned earlier. We hope to work with botanists
in determining what Aloes are in most danger and to help support
the establishment of reserves and protection of habitat.
