The Instructors

Nancy Ross Hugo is an outdoor writer, lecturer, and floral designer who has been gardening in Virginia for over 30 years. Nancy is known to many Virginians as the author of gardening columns for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, of wildlife habitat columns for Virginia Wildlife, and of natural history features that have appeared in a wide variety of popular magazines and periodicals. Nancy served as education manager at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden until 2004, and for decades she offered workshops in floral design and other art forms that take their inspiration from nature at Flower Camp in Buckingham County. Nancy is the author of Earth Works: Readings for Backyard Gardeners (University of Virginia Press, 1997) and with Jeff Kirwan, of Remarkable Trees of Virginia (Albemarke Books, 2008). Nancy’s third book, Seeing Trees, illustrated by fine art photographer Robert Llewellyn, will be published by Timber Press this summer. Native trees, shrubs and wildflowers are her primary inspirations.
