Gardening With What You Have



working in the garden



In case you haven't noticed through my blog, I'm kind of obsessed with gardens, their joys and problems. I draw from experiences gleaned from over 25 years of getting down and dirty. The desire to share it with others was what inspired me to write, teach and lecture. My talks are packed with practical, hands-on advice everyone can use to achieve the wow factor.


Recently, I joined a group called Great Garden Its goal is to make it easier for garden clubs, botanical gardens and other groups to find high-quality speakers. You can see my profile and find out more about what I have to offer at  Great Garden Speakers.
