They’ll show you how to combine bulbs, perennials, annuals, ground covers and flowering shrubs that will create just the feeling you want to generate for three seasons in your garden. After seeing and experiencing this demonstration or the talk, or the walk, you’ll leave with information and inspiration to produce a garden that you, your neighbors and friends will enjoy all year.

One of Brent’s greatest joys is sharing his love of all things natural in the world and inspiring people of all ages and experiences to look at the world around them in a different, eye-opening way. He has helped them understand how to take care of the earth for the next crop and/or for future generations. His plans for the future are to continue to play in his garden and care for the earth while encouraging others to do the same!    

Brent helped Tom Armstrong layout the daffodil fields at Hooverness.
