Why Gardens Matter: At the most basic level gardens give us pleasure, but public gardens are as necessary to public well-being and economic advancement as any public program or infrastructure project. Meet Toronto Botanical Garden's new Executive Director and discover more about why gardens matter in creating a healthy and prosperous civil society.

He is currently Executive Director of Toronto Botanical Garden, having held the posts of Garden Director at VanDusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver for five years, Head of Horticulture at Royal Botanical Gardens and Head Gardener at the Stratford Festival. He is the author of “This Other Eden” and designer of the Walkerton Heritage Water Garden and Stratford’s Elizabethan Garden. Current expansion plans at TBG have him busy planning a 30-acre expansion to the current garden.
