Professional horticulturist, Victoria, BC

 

Historical Influences of Gardening

 

 

Our 2015 Louise Beck Guest Lecturer will present a journey through history touching on some of the most influential and important garden styles.

The gardens may be simply beautiful or more practical in their appearance but every historical culture has led to the modern garden of today.

 

 

Jeff is an instructor in horticulture and has taught at Colorado State University and Olds College in Alberta, Canada.

He is an award winning garden designer, garden speaker, garden writer and leads garden tours to New Zealand, Europe and South Africa.

He was the site manager at Abkhazi Garden, a part of the The Land Conservancy in Victoria, BC.


He also broadcasts a weekly radio program “Gardening 101”.
