The best part of my work is collaborating and putting together a mix of interesting and thoughtful stories around a particular theme as we dig deep to explore every aspect of the landscape and our environment from a horticultural perspective.

In recent months I’ve been collaborating with Lisa Lee Benjamin, an environmental design and development consultant. Lisa is my guest co-editor for the upcoming fall issue of Pacific Horticulture where we’re taking a fresh look at Green Roofs and what they have to offer the urban environment and native habitat.
