October 18th Meeting
Beverly Hurley - Adventures in Publishing a Garden Magazine.
Beverly Hurley, editor and publisher of Garden Destinations, is also the editor and publisher of Triangle Gardener magazine, North Carolina’s leader in gardening news and information. She started Garden Destinations as a result of her love of gardening and realizing that she was always seeking out public garden anywhere she traveled. As a result, she decided to spread the word that visiting public gardens should be part of the travel experience. In addition to her love of gardening and visiting gardens, she has a background in marketing, public relations, and advertising that extends over 25 years. Over this time, she owned a successful tourism public relations firm in the Midwest where she promoted many high profile tourism destinations and events. As part of her work, she loved traveling and discovering stories along the way, including many beautiful public gardens waiting to be experienced. Beverly is a long-time member of the Society of American Travel Writers and a member of the Garden Writers Association. She also serves as the historian of the Society of American Travel Writers. In her free time when she isn’t in the traveling and gardening, Beverly is a nationally-certified official for USA Swimming.
