I love to share my passion for gardening with others and offer presentations to garden clubs, nurseries, horticultural societies, trade organizations, and garden shows across the country. I also host a limited number of workshops and events in my own garden during the year as my travel schedule allows.

How to Book a Seminar or Workshop

Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in a presentation, live or via Zoom for your garden club or association.

Concerned at how successful a virtual talk might be? Here's a recent testimonial received in a lovely thank you note:

"Thank you for a top notch presentation….The lecture was engaging, enlightening, and so very enjoyable….Your warm personality and the way you asked questions of the audience and encouraged their participation elevated the experience to so much more than I ever expected we could achieve…." Jess Hart, Director of Education, Meijer Gardens

You are welcome to download my latest speakers one sheet with suggestions for topics.

Unique, inspirational KEYNOTE ADDRESSES are also available and can be tailored to your audience.
