I am resigning from the University of Minnesota Extension to start a new position just across the border at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls (UWRF) as an assistant professor in Horticulture. Leaving the University of Minnesota Extension is bittersweet because I truly love Extension and all the wonderful people I've gotten to know and the opportunities I've been very fortunate to be a part of. The Yard and Garden News is one of them- first as a frequent author and then also as your editor. I have loved interacting with those of you that have contacted me and the great fun it has been being on the lookout for additional authors that have interesting information and stories to share with us. At UWRF I'll have a teaching appointment working with undergraduate students. I'll be teaching plant propagation, woody plant identification, introduction to plant science, nursery management, and hopefully also plant breeding. I look forward to helping lay a strong foundation in our next generation of horticulturists and helping students connect to their unique passions within horticulture.
