Garden Lectures

For more than ten years, I’ve presented programs on a variety of gardening topics throughout New England and the lower Hudson Valley, speaking to flower show audiences, garden clubs, and at libraries and other venues where I can reach interested gardeners. Whether it’s cottage gardening, shade gardening or another subject altogether, I probably have a program your group would enjoy.

Here’s what people say about my programs:

“Your presentation was a brilliant kick-off to our garden lecture series.”
“We really enjoyed your talk last night. It was so uplifting to see the colorful slides of your lovely garden.”
“You’re an engaging presenter!”
“Very informative—nice speaking voice.”
“I enjoyed the presentation and learned a lot.”
“Thank you so much!”
