"I’ve heard many native talks and was very impressed by yours and the time you took putting it together; it was easily one of the best, if not the best, I’ve heard."
"That was a special lecture that Thomas gave this past winter at the New York Botanical Garden, signaling a kind of turning point for native and naturalistic design."
