Author Biography

Jane Shellenberger is a lifelong eclectic gardener who learned about plants from her botanist mother. An environmental activist for many years, she has worked on several successful air-and water-quality campaigns, motivated by a great love for Colorado's blue skies, semiarid western landscapes, and wildlife. Shellenberger is publisher and editor of the regional gardening magazine Colorado Gardener, a thinking-gardener's companion, which she founded in 1997. She is a member of the Garden Writers Association, Boulder Culinary Gardeners, and the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the North American Rock Garden Society. She lives on a five-acre farmette on the plains between Boulder and Longmont, Colorado, with her companion, Oscar.
