Speakers Bureau

The speakers bureau represents one of the most important parts of the Master Gardener program – EDUCATION.

Below are some of our recent presentations; however, we can provide research and information on many extended topics. Garden clubs, civic associations, homeowners associations, nature advocates - we are here to address your needs.
