Please join us in welcoming our new Executive Director, George Lasch, to the PlantAmnesty family!



George is known by many at PlantAmnesty for his passion for plants, the " The Good, the Bad and the Why Bother" series of lectures he does for the Master Gardeners, the Hydrangea Pruning lecture that he gave at our recent PlantAmnesty Prune-A-Thon, and his guided PlantAmnesty walking tour through the Bellevue Botanical Gardens.

George comes to us with a strong and diverse horticultural background.
George has recently guided the major renovation and re-growing of the famed Northwest Perennial Alliance Border at the Bellevue Botanical Gardens. He has also been shaping horticultural minds at Edmonds Community College for over 10 years and has a lifetime's worth of experience training and working at public gardens throughout the US and England.

We are excited to have George on board at PlantAmnesty and we are looking forward to working alongside him with humor and intention as he helps shape the future of PlantAmnesty.
