Kelly Dodson and Sue Milliken: Knee-Buckling New Plants from the Far Reaches

Date: 7pm-9pm, Feb 9, 2022

Kelly and Sue have spent their lives learning and working with plants in nurseries, botanic gardens and on plant hunting expeditions.  They are owners of Far Reaches Farm whose extensive collection of plants is spectacularly unfocused.   The nursery has been featured in magazines such as Pacific Horticulture, Horticulture, Garden Gate, Martha Stewart Living and in 2021, mentioned in the New York Times as “arguably the best nursery in the country for cool-climate perennials” and in Gardens Illustrated as “one of the best nurseries in the world.”  In addition, they are contributing editors for Fine Gardening magazine.  They are also founding directors of Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy, a non-profit whose mission is the acquisition and conservation of vulnerable plants of wild and cultivated origin that are new or rare in North America.  Visit them at or
