09 Jun Joan Lenart
Business + Technical Mgr.
Natureworker since 2004
Ct. Certified Master Gardener
Ct. Accredited Nursery Professional
I’ve been a member of the Ct. Horticulture Society for many years and I worked part-time at Comstock Ferre shortly before finding my way to Natureworks. Technically, I help keep Natureworks current and share my knowledge with other Natureworkers.
MY SPECIALTY: I’ll let you know when I find one!
FUN FACT: I meditate and practice Tai Chi to help balance my passion for plants with my passion for technical data. I am a UConn volunteer Beetle Farmer, helping to reduce the Ct. invasive purple loosestrife plant. I love to learn new things and look forward to change– it keeps life interesting.
NANCY ADDS…“Joan and I met while volunteering for the CT Horticultural Society flower show display. She is a solid, calm presence and keeps everything running smoothly at Natureworks. Intelligent and focused, she is the force behind the website, our catalog, and many other important parts of the Natureworks world.”
