Elisabeth Zander
Bio: 
While working in the propagation department at White Flower Farm in the mid 80’s, Elisabeth was introduced to the wonders of rock gardening by some of the greats in the Connecticut chapter of NARGS. Shortly thereafter she joined the Berkshire Chapter of NARGS and worked under Norman Singer as the Newsletter Editor. An avid grower since joining, she was sowing well over 1,400 packets of seed yearly by the late 90’s. She built raised berms, hill pocket, and shade gardens to house all the plants and kept over 2,500 species thriving. At the turn of the millennium, Elisabeth moved her gardening to a blank slate of property in Goshen. Since then, she and her husband Rod have built a greenhouse, stone walls, plunge beds, troughs, raised beds, sand beds, and extensive crevice gardens. In 2018 they received the Linc and Timmy Foster Millstream Garden Award for creating a superior garden which reflects the standards of the Millstream Garden. Still sowing seed, she has tapered down to a couple of hundred packets of seed a year!
