Featured Lecturer Dan Benarcik
Saturday, June 8 at 11 am
Dan attended the University of Delaware, graduating with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Plant Science. He began his career at Mt. Cuba Center, working as the Woods Path Gardener before taking a position as a sales rep for Imperial Nurseries. After realizing selling plants did not tap into his creative skills, Dan moved to his current position at Chanticleer Garden in Wayne, PA., overseeing the courtyard gardens with an emphasis on tropical, sub-tropical and tender perennials for seasonal display.
Dan began a second career as a public speaker, joining the Garden Writers Association, currently serving as Regional Director. His pieces have appeared in Fine Gardening, Horticulture, Martha Stewart Living and several of Rodale’s gardening books. Dan has promoted plants on QVC for Cottage Farms Nursery and was featured on episodes of Cultivating Life. Dan also teaches groundcover classes in the continuing education program at Longwood Gardens and volunteers for The Delaware Center for Horticulture’s rare plant auctions.
