Dave Whitinger serves as the Executive Director of the National Gardening Association. He was raised by a family of gardeners in a rural area, and his love for the land and the things that grow on it led him to create several highly popular and successful gardening websites.
Dave is a frequent lecturer on advanced gardening topics. He continues the development and operation of the Garden.org website, alongside his wife Trish, who serves as NGA's Chief Operating Officer. They live with their eight children on a 90 acre ranch in East Texas, where they tend extensive ornamental and edible gardens.
