Speaking List
Gardening “Weird and Wonderful Plants” The plants in this presentation are not all native or edible. The inspiration and driving force behind this list I’ve put together is to excite the eyes, provide some unique specimens you may not have seen before, start conversations in gardens and HOPEFULLY – you’ll learn or see something new. Gardening
Gardening "A Day in the Life of a Landscape Designer" Created as a way to educate the public and students on what it is exactly we do, why it is important, and an excellent rewarding career! Gardening
