Kent Gordon England has designed beautiful, healthy, regenerative gardens for over 50 years.

Engaging the knowledge and experience from a lifetime of design work, Kent redefines the purpose of a garden. He demands that a garden provides healthy and nurturing support of Nature, her diverse residents, and most importantly… for us.

He shares in detail all of the working parts of a healthy garden, and how they all work together to bring balance and harmony to the space or site that we create.

As a sought-after speaker and educator, Kent presents his innovative concepts and ideas using real-life stories from a lifetime dedicated to design and preservation.

Celebrated for his expertise in sustainable and regenerative design, Kent Gordon England will guide attendees on a journey to create gardens that harmoniously reunite with Nature and all of her wonderful inhabitants. Many gardens old and new lack this vibrancy, and Kent will emphasize that a garden's true success lies in its ability to embrace and nurture life itself.

Gardens are so much more than a collection of plants. Kent will delve into the intricate web of relationships within a garden. He explains the crucial role healthy soil plays as a vital ecosystem. He will discuss beneficial insects, pollinators, and migratory birds, as well as all of the other working inhabitants of a garden. Participants will learn how these living residents collaboratively contribute to not only a breathtaking aesthetic… but to the actual health and longevity of the garden itself.

Attendees will gain valuable insights into rebuilding their gardens to direct Nature and her unmistakable perfection back to the forefront.
