STEVE CASTORANI, PRESIDENT AND CEO OF NORTH CREEK NURSERIES
Growing Greener... On The Landscape Side.
From function, to aesthetic, to food source - producing plants that provide ecosystem
services has become a rapidly expanding market opportunity. Steve discusses his
experience working with municipalities and landscape architects and offers insights to
landscape contractors and designers on how they can grow and sell more plants!

JAMES FUNAI, PhD, ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF HORTICULTURE AT TRI-C
What If I Told You There Aren’t Any “Special Plants” For Rain-Gardens?
Following four years of soil research in rain gardens, this presentation will share the
outcomes which suggest it is the soil recipe that matters more than finding specific plants.

BILL HENDRICKS, PRESIDENT OF KLYN NURSERIES
Trees for Bees
With the current focus on the importance of pollinators and so much talk on pollinator
plants it is important to remember that many trees provide a lot of flower power that
benefits pollinators. Research by Dr. Dan Potter of the University of Kentucky has shown the
importance of which trees provide the most benefits and are the basis for this talk.

BILL RIPLEY, OWNER OF STRIDE STUDIOS
Responsible Design for Responsible Installations in a Responsible World
In today’s world many garden design trends are rooted in sustainable, ecological or
“green” design principles. These trends are currently in high demand by consumers.
Consumer’s today feel a ‘responsibility’ to protect our environment. As some of the largest
purveyors of “green practices” and protectors of the environment we should be taking
advantage of the consumer appetite for “all things green”. Embracing today’s hot trends
will profit you personally and economically, separating you from your competitors, all while
benefiting the environment.
