Thomas Rainer
Thomas Rainer is a registered landscape architect, teacher, and author who explores the crossroads between ecology and horticulture. A passionate proponent of diverse and visually harmonious natural landscapes, he is the acclaimed co-author of Planting in a Post-Wild World: Designing Plant Communities for Resilient Landscapes. In this book, he proposes a new nature, a hybrid of the wild and the cultivated, that can flourish in cities and suburbs.



Dr. Robert Lyons 
Dr. Robert Lyons has had a distinguished 33-year academic career focusing on herbaceous plants at Virginia Tech, Longwood Gardens, and the University of Delaware. His work examines the cross-roads between garden structure and whimsical design. With numerous national awards, Lyons sums up his garden style as “color, color, color.” He favors herbaceous plants in the classic British style, mixing annuals with perennials for a continuous color presentation throughout the season.


Craig LeHoullier
Craig LeHoullier left the corporate world of chemistry and pharmaceuticals to follow his passion for gardening. A self-proclaimed “tomato nut” he advocates user-friendly methods of growing vegetables ideal for seniors, children, and patio gardeners. His approach puts him at the crossroads of tending a large garden or growing vegetables on a small scale. Author, lecturer, and educator, Craig espouses the joys of gardening and is an expert in heirloom tomatoes and seed banks. He believes that diversity is one of the best reasons to “grow your own.”
