U.S. Botanic Garden ISO Executive Director


After 14 years at its helm, Holly Shimizu is leaving the U.S. Botanic Garden this week, retiring to a life of…to be determined.  (Wild guess – some gardening, and somehow pursuing her passion for hollyconservation.)  She tells me there will be a national search for her replacement, so spread to word to worthy horticulturalist/administrators you may know.  Holly’s shoes won’t be easy to fill.

I ran into Holly last week at the USBG’s Earth Day celebration and when I heard her big news, I decided that her retirement send-off needed a little video.  So this one’s for Holly.  Hope she likes swing music!
