We envision a resilient world dependent on the thoughtful cultivation of plants

Chair’s Alliance for Giving

A Message from our Board Chair 

I have been a fan of Pacific Horticulture since I was a college kid in the 70’s. Like so many of us back then, I was enamored with the quality publication. Patiently waiting, once each quarter, just to bend open the cover and whiff the fresh ink before pouring over pages on gardens and gardeners, plants and their science & uses, the goings on in the various horticulture groups up and down the coast.

How could I imagine then that I would one day chair their board, but here I am. And here Pacific Horticulture is, in its evolved state of climate consciousness, continuing to provide relevant content via science writers and professionals to an ever-expanding audience.

It is so gratifying to now be in a position to support this important work, standing alongside members of our Chair’s Alliance. This Alliance represents a level of commitment from so many great leaders. I thank you for standing with me as we inspire others.
