Keynote speaker Howard Garrett, The Dirt Doctor, is a leader in the
natural organic marketplace and provides advice on natural organic
gardening, landscaping, pet health, pest control and natural living via a nationally-syndicated radio talk show and in his column, Organic Answers which appears in the Dallas Morning News.
