Gardeners of Burlington presents guest speaker Kevin Kavanagh “Native vs. invasive plants while gardening
for nature”

group of amateur gardeners interested in learning more about all aspects of
gardening.

Kevin Kavanagh is the owner of South
Coast Gardens and Consulting, a small nursery and landscape design business in

Although an avid gardener for much of his life,
Kevin spent most of his early career in the field of nature conservation
working for organizations such as The Nature Conservancy of Canada and World
Wildlife Fund Canada. 

Kevin’s long standing interest in North American
native plants began while conducting field studies in the diverse eastern
forests of Carolinian Canada, the Appalachian Mountains and the U.S. southeast.
Today, Kevin gets great satisfaction from growing and introducing customers to
plants that provide benefits to pollinators, birds and other wildlife. 

Kevin holds a B.Sc. (Hons.) from McGill University,
a M.Sc. from York University and several years of post-graduate research in
Botany at the University of Toronto. He is a member of the Grand Erie Master
Gardeners and Niagara Chapter of the American Rhododendron Society. Kevin has
authored several book chapters and articles celebrating Canada’s wild places
and the rich plant life of Ontario’s Carolinian zone.
