Our Guest:

Diane is the Executive Director of All-America Selections and National Garden Bureau, she has been deeply (and happily!) immersed in gardening from an early age. From growing up on a small family farm in Missouri to her small suburban lot in the Chicago-land area, she is passionate about everything green.

After spending 15 years with Ball Publishing, Diane moved to take on her current role where she can be even closer to the end consumer. Both All-America Selections and National Garden Bureau are in an exciting period of growth and influence both inside and outside the industry with innovative ideas and progressive programs for consumers, garden communicators, public gardens, and a full range of growers and retailers that have benefited all segments of the horticulture industry.
