Join Tim as he discusses the “insider’s view” of Anderson Japanese Gardens.  Mr. Gruner will look back at the many factors that influenced Garden over the last twelve months.  He will share the routine and not so routine, from winter to fall, weather patterns and special projects – they all have an impact on the Garden.

Gruner graduated from Kishwaukee College’s Horticulture program in 1987.  After graduation, he spent one year as a horticultural intern at Chicago Botanic Garden followed by a year as a grower for the All-American Selection trial at Kishwaukee College.  He began working at Anderson Japanese Gardens in 1989 and eventually worked his way up to Garden Curator.  He oversees all construction and horticulture activities within the Gardens.  He currently serves on the Board of Directors of the North American Japanese Garden Association.
