2018 speaking engagements

One of the most fun tangents of my garden writing career is the opportunity to speak to organizations, garden clubs and horticultural societies about the gardening topics I’m passionate about.

My main topic is about raised beds (I’ve included a synopsis below). I also run longer workshops.

Raised Bed Revolution: Why raised beds rule
Whether you have a teeny tiny patio or a big yard, raised beds are a great gardening solution that allow you to garden almost anywhere. There are also multiple benefits to building raised bed gardens, from covering up poor soil and providing better accessibility to extending the growing season. Learn about the benefits, and come away inspired by ideas that you can use to create your own raised bed. Not handy? No problem! There are lots of premade kits available to let you get started right away. You’ll also learn where to put your new garden, what soil to use and what to plant—edibles, as well as ornamentals for the pollinators!

Please email me at taranolan00[at]gmail.com if you are interested in booking me for a talk. Besides my expertise in raised beds, I also can provide a presentation about Garden BFFs: Why you should plant ornamentals in your edible garden and vice versa. My partners and I have written about this topic on Savvy Gardening. I can also adapt my talks to suit the audience.
