Noel Kingsbury New ways with perennials. 
A broader look at a variety of contemporary approaches to using perennials: naturalistic, modernist, the Oudolf look etc. 

Noel Kingsbury has been professionally active in horticulture since 1986, but had been a keen gardener as a child. The story of his ‘bunking off’ school on Tuesday afternoons to visit the Chelsea Flower Show has become something of a legend. The whole field of ‘ecological planting design’ also drew him into working with the department of landscape at Sheffield University, a world centre for the integration of ecology, landscape and horticulture. In 2009 Noel was awarded a doctorate for his research on long-term perennial plant  at Sheffield University.


Linda Chalker-Scott How Plants Work: The Science behind the Amazing Things Plants Do

Dr. Linda Chalker-Scott has a Ph.D. in Horticulture from Oregon State University and is an ISA certified arborist. She is WSU's Extension Urban Horticulturist and an Associate Professor in the Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture. In her position, she develops educational materials for home gardeners, certified arborists, restoration ecologists, pesticide applicators, and the nursery and landscape industry. She is also a regular contributor and science editor for Master Gardener Magazine, a Washington-based quarterly publication that presents scientifically valid information to a popular gardening audience.


Linda Gilkeson: Root Diseases in the Vegetable Garden - Her NEW talk ( and why we need to know about this )

Linda earned a Ph.D. in Entomology from McGill University in 1986. Linda has co-authored pest management training manuals for the government and organic gardening books for Rodale Press. She has self-published three books, most recently Resilient Gardens 2016: Climate Change, Stress Disorders, Pest Update. Her comprehensive gardening book, Backyard Bounty: The Complete Guide to year-Round Organic Gardening in the Pacific Northwest, has become a BC best seller.

As a private consultant, Linda is a regular instructor in the Master Gardener programs in BC and is busy year around giving workshops on pest management and organic gardening.
