email: dhobson@golden.net

David was born and raised in Yorkshire, England, but has made Canada his home. He has ink stains on his green thumb and lives in Waterloo, Ontario, where he loves to watch things grow — his children, his garden, his friends and his compost heap (which should eventually shrink). In addition to creating the Garden Humour website, he is the weekly garden columnist for The Record, Waterloo Region and The Guelph Mercury, a contributor to Grand Magazine, GardenMaking magazine, and other gardening publications. He has written two books of humorous garden stories -- Soiled Reputations, and Diary of a Mad Gardener -- also available from Amazon as eBooks. A popular speaker, David has spoken to numerous horticultural societies and gardening groups, including Canada Blooms, The Canadian National Exhibition, The Southwestern Flower Show in Atlanta Georgia, and the Ontario Horticultural Association Convention. With the humour and passion of a lifelong gardener, he entertains with tales of garden adventures, including lots of tips, or if desired, the more practical aspects of gardening. Join him on a light-hearted and informative journey to the heart of gardens. See magic and mystery while exploring the essential qualities discovered therein -- inspiration, creativity, patience . . . and humour.
