Garden Presentations

Garden clubs and civic associations have a longstanding need for informative programs for their meetings and gatherings. This project’s mission is to develop and provide a variety of presentations in PowerPoint format for their use.

In 2018, as a pilot project, the Garden Presentations team joined Homestead Gardens in a 5-month program of presentations on pollinators. These presentations will be edited to form the foundation of a library. Once finalized, they will be uploaded to be available online to those clubs and associations that would like a Master Gardener program for a meeting or for an educational session.

The Garden Presentations team will continue to build the library, and members may choose subjects they want to research or edit existing presentations to meet requirements as stand-alone sessions.

The team especially welcomes “new” Master Gardeners, as their input and critiques will be critical to making the presentations successful, and as members of the project, they will learn from one another and contribute from their own gardening experience. Those with skill sets in writing, publishing, creating PowerPoint, proofreading, researching, and who have a genuine love for and curiosity about all things horticultural are invited to join in making this project fun and educational.
