Dan Bacheler

Horticulture & Landscape Technologies – Westminster Campus

Dan grew up in northern Michigan with a jungle of houseplants on the porch, so his roots in horticulture run deep - his mother is a botanist and his father a hobbyist gardener. He started from the ground up, working as a laborer, then a designer, then a superintendent during his 12 years in the field. Dan has a bachelor's degree in horticulture from Michigan State University.
