Instructor: Kimberly Kincaid "My name is Kimberly Kincaid. I earned a degree in Agriculture and Education from The Ohio State University, well, a long long time ago. After spending 25 years in the insurance industry it was time to get back to my ‘roots’ so in 2016 I returned to The Ohio State University and studied sustainable plant systems. In 2020 I became a Franklin County Master Gardener Volunteer.

I have designed, created, and maintained many gardens over the last 30+ years and while successes are great, I must admit that I have learned more from my failures as by my success. This is so true, that my garden referred to as my botanical laboratory.

I love all things plants and can be a bore at parties unless you love plants as much as I do. My favorite things to do are to buy plans, grow plants, make new plants and to teach others about plants."
