Haig Seferian in two-part Toronto Star series
In answering the reporter’s question on his role on HGTV, Seferian said, “That was by chance, kind of like how I fell into the landscape architecture role. I belong to a number of industry associations: Landscape Ontario, the Ontario Association of Landscape Architects, and I’m a fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects. I’ve always volunteered a lot in my career. Back in 1996, when HGTV had just gotten approval, producers were out trying to create home and garden shows. One producer had contacted a number of the associations I had belonged to, and I guess they recommended me. I was contacted to come in and act as an advisor, simply a one-time shot. I was happy to do so; if my industry is calling, I’m happy to help out.”
