Nativity Speaker Series Spotlight: Fred Dabney

Fred Dabney, owner of Quansett Nurseries in South Dartmouth, joined the Nativity community on Thursday, November 16 as part of the school’s Speaker Series program.  Dabney spoke in depth to students about the work of horticulturalists and life within the agricultural community.  Students asked great questions about all facets of Dabney’s work.  They were especially curious to learn more about the process used to select plants for growing and the work of creating new varieties through hybridization.  Dabney encouraged students to pursue something they are passionate about… “the [college or university] will work for you if you are into what you are studying.”
