The publisher and editor of Triangle Gardener is Beverly Hurley, a Triangle resident who has a background in garden scouting and writing, marketing and public relations.

To kick off the first issue, Triangle Gardener is a sponsor of the upcoming Southern Ideal Home Show, April 3-5, at the State Fairgrounds.
