 About our Guest Speaker: Kevin Kelly

Kevin is a Penn State Extension Dauphin County Master Gardener. His career as a Family Physician has taught him the importance of gardening for both mental and physical well-being. He started to garden over 35 years ago and realized that developing a “green thumb” is all about persistence and not being afraid to make mistakes along the way. He has won Two Blue Ribbons from the Pennsylvania Horticulture Society Gardening Contest and his garden has been included in multiple garden tours. His garden has also been certified as a Pollinator and Wildlife Habitat Garden by the Pennsylvania Master Gardener Program, the Manada Conservancy, and the National Wildlife Federation. He has turned his 1/3-acre suburban property into a garden to be enjoyed year-round.
