Author, plant collector, lecturer, teacher, consultant, nurseryman, naturalist, and gardener, our speaker Dan Hinkley has traveled the world in his quest for distinctive plants. His search has taken him to China, Korea, Nepal, Chile, Vietnam, and remote areas of North America. In this lecture, he will focus on the expeditions themselves and their associated challenges. Learn the stories behind some of the plants that Dan is particularly proud of having introduced into cultivation. Dan established Heronswood Garden in Kingston, WA with his partner, Robert Jones. He has written several books about plants from his travels, including The Explorer's Garden. More recently, Dan and Robert have developed a new garden and nursery, Windcliff, dedicated to propagating only those plants they feel deserve greater recognition in gardens of North America.
No-host bar opens at 6pm and lecture begins at 7pm.
