Kathy DeVylder lives in Lenox, a life long gardener, who uses her teacher training as she ‘teaches’ us how to start with seeds.  Jodi Cahillane, also a Lenox resident who has been editor of the Master Gardeners “Grapevine” for a good many years.  She has an intense interest and concern that we care for the environment: her topic, Managing the Garden has a genuine environmentally right flavor.

Duncan McQueen is from Pittsfield.  His garden, filled with perennials, will be on the Concealed Garden Tour in  July.

Carol Maynard has designed gardens for Springside House in Pittsfield, where she resides and for Providence Court and shares her experience and expertise in Strategies for the Garden.– .

Cathy Clark from Egremont is an old fashioned ‘dirt’ gardener whose volunteer time at the Berkshire Botanical Garden includes being Garden treasurer and working in the magnificent Takton Garden there.  She knows what she discusses.  Pittsfield’s Ann Long has one of the most complete gardens in Pittsfield, if not the county, with all the work done by Ann.  She captivated those who came to the Plant Exchange last June with a Container demonstration! Great!

Jack Sprano resides in Stockbridge where he and his wife garden some four acres.  Jack came into a true knowledge of pruning through his efforts on his own land.  You will learn how!  Diane Wetzel’s vegetable garden is superior!  She shares her expertise in planting, growing and enjoying vegetable gardening.  From Sandisfield, Nancy Flach has grown bonsai in Florida and the Berkshires.  Other Master Gardens think of Nancy as an Expert Bonsai teacher.
