Did you know that your local WSU-certified Master Gardeners have a Speaker’s Bureau? Our experts enjoy sharing their passion and experience with the community.
Simply schedule a presentation, and they’ll come to your meeting, free of charge.

Our teaching team includes one of the Yakima Herald-Republic’s garden columnists, and the 2015 Washington State Master Gardener of the Year and founder of Yakima’s Heirloom Vegetable Garden. The Speaker’s Bureau can design a presentation uniquely tailored for your group’s needs, or you can choose from the list of popular topics below.

Creating a Butterfly/Bird Garden Raised Bed Gardening Planting for Pollinators Care of Houseplants
Composting and Vermiculture Container Gardening Drip Irrigation Xeric Gardening
Growing Culinary Herbs Cooking with Herbs Growing Table Grapes Vegetable Gardening Basics
Seed Saving Ornamental Grasses and Lawn Alternatives Growing Cut Flowers Herbaceous Perennials for the Yakima Garden

A recent group sent this comment: “Thank you for giving such an enjoyable presentation, we all learned so much about caring for our houseplants“.
