Learn more about RIDS members, who are just about as diverse as the flowers they grow!
RIDS member dedication has kept the organization going (and growing!) for over 40 years. William “Pop” Dykstra, who was the last remaining charter member of RIDS, passed away in the fall of 2007. So while none of RIDS’ current members can trace their history with the organization back to its humble beginnings, many of our present members have been involved for years (decades even!). This page introduces some of our colorful members, and includes photos (where available) of their equally colorful gardens!
This is by no means a complete list. Members who wished to submit photos or information about themselves are listed below, in alphabetical order by last name. Where members have also submitted photos, there is a link within each respective profile. Click on the link to view that member’s garden or favorite blooms.
