My Presentations

These are movie-format slides of gardening presentations that I've made locally in recent years.  If you are looking for a speaker, and something along these topics look appealing, please contact me.  Of course, while viewing the presentations, please try to remember that these movies are missing my inimitable speaking style and wit!
