Megan Cain
Megan will present Beyond the Herb Rack: There are few greater delights than grabbing a handful of fresh herbs to complete your evening meal. And creatively incorporating herbs into your garden design can help elevate your garden from ordinary to extraordinary!
She will share the simple step by step process of building an herb spiral to add structure and interest to your garden. In addition, Megan will share how to artistically mix herbs into your plantings, unique and colorful varieties to grow, and super easy ways to preserve herbs for off season use.

Richard Hawk
Richard will present Perennial Favorites: Old and New, focusing on a variety of proven plants from 30 years of trials, including new selections and old favorites. He is the Chicago Botanic Garden’s Plant Evaluation Manager. Richard is responsible for the comparative evaluation of perennials and woody plants each year.

Mark Dwyer
Mark will present Hardscaping in the Garden, while plants are an important component in our garden spaces, the uses of paths, patios, decks, fences, rocks and other “hardscaping” elements are also vital in creating and defining a beautiful and functional garden space.
