Lynn Lorio first developed a green thumb back in 2014 when she experimented with growing her first vegetable garden at home. To her delight, the garden was a success, and from there her love affair with plants grew - eventually leading her to pursue a degree in horticulture. Her career as a Horticulturist spans over 6 years working at places such as Cincinnati Parks, Green City Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, & Green City Resources. Imago is excited to co-host this event with our friends from Do It Yourself Darlin' (DIYD).
