Hi Again!

You may have noticed that my website has not been very active lately. Unfortunately my former webmaster, Jean Ann Van Krevelen, is no longer able to manage the site. I plan be more active and keep providing you with more information to help you both design and maintain a fabulous garden. I’ve just uploaded my spring and summer schedule in case you want to attend one of my lectures.
