RSVP now and get to know our 71st Man of the Year:
He knows how to make a garden grow. During his nearly 20-year tenure at the Desert Botanical Garden (DBG) he has managed construction of $35 million in new facilities, initiated a number of exciting new education and research projects and raised more than $15 million in gifts and pledges for the Garden’s endowment. With a background in biology, he loves to teach and to garden, and that effort is being realized at two DBG-led community gardens in Phoenix that provide fresh produce to communities that live in food deserts. “I believe in museums serving. We serve the entire community,” he told the Phoenix Business Journal.
