Shayne Chandler - 2017  Guest Speaker - Saturday, June 24, Sehmel Park

Shayne Chandler, owner of Plant LLC in Kingston, WA, Saturday, June 24 at 1:00 p.m. at Sehmel Homestead Park will speak on "Mixed Greens - Better gardening through Foliage: The intentional design of foliar texture and color extends the aesthetic well beyond summer, providing a garden that can be enjoyed year-round."

Shayne Chandler has enjoyed success as a landscape designer in the Pacific Northwest for over 25 years. Having earned his degree in fine arts from Art Center in Pasadena, CA, he sought to combine his visual and conceptual art skills with his lifelong love of plants, eventually building a thriving career in horticulture. In addition to a large, three-acre personal garden, Shayne has built (and maintains) multiple residential gardens, several of which have been featured on both the Garden Conservancy and the Bainbridge in Bloom tours. In addition, he has had gardens featured in local and national press, including The Seattle Times’ Pacific Magazine and Martha Stewart’s blog. 

Shayne is also an avid plant collector, having traveled with horticulturalist Dan Hinkley, and independently, to Myanmar, Vietnam, China, Ecuador, and Guatemala.
