13th Annual Chanticleer Lecture: Dan Hinkley, Plantsman

Dan Hinkley’s lifelong interest in plants has led him to a fascinating career, traveling the globe to uncover rare and unusual plants. He has ventured into the wilds of China, South and Central America, Mexico, New Zealand, South Africa, Nepal, Vietnam, Taiwan, Sikkim, Bhutan, Tasmania and Canada, numerous times a year for the past 16 years. On Sunday, April 15, 2012, at 3pm, Hinkley brings his expertise to Radnor Memorial Library to lecture on the forgotten elements of good design: texture, movement and fragrance in the garden. The lecture is underwritten by Chanticleer, as it has been for the past 12 years. Registration is not required.

Founder of the original Heronswood Nursery in Kingston, Washington, Dan Hinkley has been bestowed with many honors and lifetime achievement awards from the most prestigious horticulture organizations. Hinkley’s awards include the Scott Arboretum Gold Medal from Swarthmore College, the Marcel Le Piniac Award from the North American Rock Garden Society, and the Veitch Memorial Medal from the Royal Horticultural Society in England.

Even with all his business ventures, his first love is gardening—digging in the soil.

See you at the Library,

Pam
