Windcliff: A Story of People, Plants, and Gardens follows the course of Dan Hinkley's plant-obsessed life as he developed his latest garden on a high bluff overlooking Puget Sound in Indianola, WA. As he reflects on his property, he also reflects upon the principles of good horticulture gathered from over five decades of gardening. He also shares the memories associated with many of the plants in his garden, from far flung reaches of the world, and the many giants in the world of gardening who have influenced his life and approach to the craft.
Join us for this webinar, the sixth in the Garden Conservancy's Fall 2020 Literary Series of biweekly webinars, as Dan discusses his new book.

About the author
Dan Hinkley, the creator of both Heronswood and Windcliff, is widely recognized as one of the foremost modern plant explorers and collectors. He currently resides in Indianola, WA, with his husband of 37 years and their two goldendoodles. Among many and varied garden spaces, Windcliff includes an arboretum based entirely on his collection work of three decades, a large greenhouse, a generous potager, and an experimental meadow, all on 6.5 acres of south-facing bluff overlooking the Salish Sea. While not working in the gardens, Hinkley works as a horticultural consultant with both architects and landscape architects on a broad assortment of projects across the globe. He is an avid hiker, bicyclist, and birder. Dan feels his greatest life achievement is recently helping to preserve 5,000 acres of local forest land from development while creating the largest county park in North America in over 50 years.
