Heinke’s interest in gardening started at a very early age on her parent’s dairy farm in the Eastern
Townships in Quebec. She owned and operated Perennial Pleasures Landscape Design, offering design,
installation and maintenance services for 20 years and taught in the Horticultural Program at Sheridan
College for 14 years.
Heinke has been an active member of Credit Valley Horticultural Society in Mississauga since 1987. She is a
Horticultural Judge accredited by the Royal Botanical Gardens, a Floral Design Judge accredited by the
Garden Clubs of Ontario and a past Chair of the Garden Clubs of Ontario Judges’ Council.
Now retired, Heinke visits public and private gardens at every opportunity and is pursuing her interest in all
things horticultural as well as floral design. She enthusiastically shares her experiences and knowledge
through lectures, demos and workshops.
