Kent Gordon England is a highly regarded horticulturist and naturalist with a deep passion for the natural world.

With a focus on living intentionally, this seminar delves into the philosophy and purpose of building and maintaining a garden. Kent's teachings extend beyond theory, offering many practical examples that illustrate how gardens can significantly improve one's quality of life

Kent breaks down simple ways to spend time in your garden every day, making the rewards accessible to both novices and experienced gardeners.

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.

Kent Gordon England and his family of companies hold Health, Wellness, and Stewardship as their core foundational values.

Aligning with the importance of having both physical health and mental well-being, Kent introduces the idea of intentional living and its connection to a rich, balanced and healthy life. Building a personal commitment to living ‘a life with intention’ can begin in the garden.

As people, we must move from the idea of landscaping as a necessity to building a garden as an expression of creativity and joy. Throughout history, the garden was presented as a precious place to connect with Nature. A sacred place to heal and be rejuvenated. An art form that was timeless.

And the work that occurred in this sacred place… the act of gardening… was a way of achieving balance and harmony in one’s life.

Attendees can expect to be inspired and educated as they leave this presentation with a greater understanding of how a garden can enhance the overall quality of their existence.
