Plants: Purposeful Landscape Attributes Naturalizing the South

Dr. Todd Beasley is Director of the School Environmental Education (SEED) Team and an environmental science teacher at Heathwood Hall School in Columbia, SC. He also serves at the current board chair for the Carolina Children’s Garden located on the Clemson Sandhill Research & Education Center Campus. With 20 years of experience connected to horticulture, Todd’s projects have become a state resource for sustainable campus landscape design and leadership through student driven projects with high focus on educational gardens. His areas of interest include sustainable and edible landscape design, environmental education, sustainable horticulture, diversity in the outdoors, and youth gardening.

Todd has won several awards for his environmental education efforts and numerous grants. He is extremely proud of the successful proposal that he wrote for the American Horticultural Society to bring their annual Children and Youth Gardening Symposium to Columbia. This symposium has brought national recognition to his school as well as the youth gardening efforts of the state of South Carolina.
