As president and co-owner of Oregon-based nursery, Terra Nova Nurseries, Dan Heims has helped introduce over 600 new plant varieties to gardeners all over the United States. Heims also shares a unique love of the environment and plants as do so many in the Portland area, and now he hopes to share some of his knowledge during this education-based lecture on March 21, 2009.
