Brook started with Lane Forest Products over 20 years ago and like the business, her knowledge of gardening has grown over those years. Lately, Brook has taken on a new challenge to go beyond a self-taught lifetime gardener, to a certified Master Gardener™ – a program she has recently begun through the Oregon State University Extension Program. It’s not that Brook needs to learn how to garden, it’s that she’s nearly retired and wants to know all she can.

Brook is a woman of many talents – she’s a hunter, a food preserver (although she hasn’t done this Master’s program yet and is looking forward to it at some point in the future), a painter, a Mom, a wife and more. Why not add Master Gardener™ to the list? Stay tuned for on-going pieces from Brook or about Brook and the lessons she’s constantly learning in the garden.
