While in a playful mood here, my friend John Nevado, president of Nevado Roses (Sweden) and a fellow YGL, is strictly business when it counts.
John is one of the largest producers of premium roses in the world, with roses coming from farms in Ecuador and Ethiopia at altitudes of almost 3,000 metres above sea level. The roses are watered wth glacial water and grow in fertile, volcanic soil. The farsm have millions of rose plants. John is a graduate of the school of advanced international science at John Hopkins University in Washington, DC and formerly wiith NATO Headquarters and the European Commission.
John often provides his brilliant roses for our annual meetings for YGL, which always sets the right tone for a discussion around our need to embrace and help heal our collective humanity.
Onward with HOPE
John Hope Bryant
