Speaker Barry Glick is owner of Sunshine Farm and Gardens in Greenbriar County, West Virginia.  When he is not on the farm working with plant propagation, Barry is lecturing and writing articles about native plants, propagation techniques and hellebores.  He has a vast collection of more than 10,000 taxa and exchanges seeds, plants and horticultural information with organizations throughout the world.
