Presented by Gregg Tepper and Ruth Clausen

Gregg Tepper is a professional horticulturist, lecturer, consultant, and life-long native plant enthusiast. Early on in his career, he held the positions of Wood Path horticulturist and director of horticulture at Mt. Cuba Center in Hockessin, Delaware. He went on to be director of horticulture and board member at Delaware Botanic Gardens, where he was instrumental in developing the garden’s initial horticultural mission and implementing a two-acre meadow designed by world-renowned garden designer Piet Oudolf. He is now the horticulturist at the Arboretum at Laurel Hill and West Laurel Hill Cemeteries in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
