Lyndon Penner grew up in Saskatchewan and began gardening at a very young age and since then, has gardened on three continents. He began working in the nursery industry at the age of 16 and by 20 he was instructing horticultural classes. Now an independent landscape consultant and garden designer, Lyndon has been much in demand as a guest speaker for gardening groups and societies and has lectured at the U. of S., UBC, Olds College, and the Calgary Zoo Botanic Garden. He has written for many gardening publications as well as three best-selling books about gardening in a short growing season. His current book is "The Way of the Gardener: Lost in the Weeds Along the Camino de Santiago", which captures his experiences walking this historical pilgrimage. You may also have heard Lyndon talking about gardening on CBC radio. When not busy in his own garden or someone else's, Lyndon works as a botanical interpreter in Waterton Lakes National Park and as a tour guide at the Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden in Lethbridge.
