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.

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
