For 24 years he directed the gardening and landscaping at Seattle University. During his tenure, the University won several prestigious environmental awards including the EPA’s highest national environmental award. The gardening program he developed led Seattle University to be the only University campus in Washington designated as a wildlife sanctuary. In 2001 he was awarded the King County ‘Earth Hero Award.’ Ciscoe has been a longtime WSU Master Gardener, an ISA Certified Arborist and a WSNLA Horticulturist. He has a distinguished media career. ‘Gardening with Ciscoe Live’ shows in 6 states and can be viewed on the NWCN TV Network. ‘Gardening with Ciscoe’ with co-host Meeghan Black can be viewed on NWCN and KONG.

Ciscoe also writes a weekly column in the Seattle Times, and his book, Ask Ciscoe . – Oh La La! Your Gardening Questions Answered (Sasquatch, 2006) is a national bestseller.
