Growing Trends

 published appearances




THE ILLINOIS GREEN INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION no longer publishes GROWING TRENDS as a paper magazine, though it continues to serve IGIA members with publication online; GROWING TRENDS is always topical with Horticulture Industry-specific news, features and more from an Illinois, regional and national perspective.

Below are links to 2 feature articles and 2 of the 3 cover photos I contibuted between 1999 and 2001.  I thank everyone at IGIA for the opportunity to reprint this archived content.
