Egan Davis - Ladner Seedy Saturday & Garden Expo 2016
We are excited to announce our fourth speaker for Ladner Seedy Saturday. Egan Davis will be speaking at 1:00 pm on February 20, 2016. Egan Davis is well known in the lower mainland of BC. He is the instructor for the Horticulture Training program at UBC. Egan has a life long passion for horticulture and nature and it shows when he talks. In 2010, Egan was nominated as educator of the year by the BC Landscape and Nursery Association. He has been featured on television, radio and in the newspaper.
Egan used to manage the plant collections at VanDusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver, BC. I remember going on a tour of the garden with him and he knew every inch of it and all the botanical names of the plants. He would tell us of his vision for the garden and you could see his passion by the way he loved his work.
Egan now teaches at the University of British Columbia and loves working with his students. He is an award winning gardener and is knowledgeable in everything from garden design to greenhouse management. The last talk I heard from him was on how to do cuttings in your garden. I look forward to hearing him speak at Ladner Seedy Saturday.
