Trisha Shirey

Trisha Shirey worked as a commercial landscape gardener in Austin, Texas, for over 35 years. She was the head gardener at the Bauer House, the home of the Chancellor of the University of Texas System. She later worked for 33 years as the director of flora and fauna at Lake Austin Spa Resort in Austin, TX, where she designed the award-winning organic herb and vegetable gardens as well as the organic orchard. She is a frequent speaker on organic gardening, native plants, wildflowers, xeriscaping, and natural pest control, and has been featured on the KLRU-TV program Central Texas Gardener. Trisha, now retired, is embarking on a new garden endeavor on a huge, undeveloped acreage. A future garden utopia is a prescription for deep, sandy, loam soil with plenty of sun and no deer, rock squirrels, or root knot nematodes.
