Savvy Women Exchanging Relevant Views welcomes Dan Hinkley next week for his presentation, “The World in My Garden.”

Hinkley — billed as “America’s most famous horticulturist” and “greatest plant collector of our time” — is also a Kitsap resident. At the SWERV meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 13, he will speak about his life in plants and his some 35 worldwide plant collecting trips in search of “above average garden plants” that can thrive in our gardens.

Hinkley is a plantsman, educator, nursery man, garden writer and much more. He was co-founder of the renowned Heronswood Garden in 1987, where he remains the director, and owns Windcliff Garden in Indianola.
