Speaking Engagements [**Updated for 2014**]

Speaking Engagements




I am available throughout the year [in season from April until September requires 60 days prior notification] to speak at horticultural events. I have compiled a number of PowerPoint presentations that focus on my area of specialty - shade gardening with rare and unusual perennials. Most of these presentations are between 30-60 minutes in length. My standard fee*  is $200.
List of Powerpoint Presentations:

Botanical Trespassing: Magnificent Gardens of Centre Wellington!
A Personal Shade Odyssey: The Creation of Teza's Hortus Magnificum
