He serves as Consulting Editor and Author for Neil Sperry’s GARDENS magazine, writes a monthly e-newsletter column entitled “Native Son,” and is an Adjunct Instructor for Tarrant County College and Texas Christian University’s Extended Education.

Garden Harmony 101—All too often, the garden master becomes a slave to the demands of her or his own creation. By properly honoring time, space, place, form, and function, gardens can be developed that evolve naturally with our lives. We will learn how to re-establish priorities, alter traditional views of garden composition, utilize alternative resources and ultimately, physically create the vision that was once just a dream.
