JeffCo Colorado Master Gardener Speakers Bureau: Master Gardeners in Service by Sally Berriman

Master Gardener show proper planting techniques
Need a great speaker for your next meeting?  Colorado State University Extension in Jefferson County may have just the person that you are looking for.  The Speakers Bureau is a group of CSU Extension certified Colorado Master Gardener volunteers who have received additional training to talk to groups on various horticultural/gardening topics.  Master Gardeners are available to give talks to garden clubs, neighborhood associations, fraternal organizations, schools, businesses or church groups. 

All of our speakers provide scientific, fact-based information on the best horticultural practices for Front Range gardeners.  There are various speaker styles available; we give lectures with or without slide presentations, demonstrations, hands-on classes as well as panel discussions.  We speak in classrooms, living rooms or backyards.
Talks are tailored to the interests of your audience.  Many groups enjoy tips on seasonal gardening tasks or “how-to” information on vegetable and flower gardens.  Question and Answer sessions are lively and informative.  Some suggested topic include: Best Plants for Front Range Gardens, Container Gardening, Lawn Care, Health Benefits of Gardening, Controlling Weeds, Reducing Water Needs, Composting, Garden Planning and Native Plants in the Landscape.  Whatever your need, we try our best to meet it.

Each year hundreds of Jefferson County citizens attend one of our Master Gardener talks and leave with their gardening concerns addressed.  Give us a call today to schedule an informative and entertaining talk about a gardening topic that interests your group.  Speakers may be booked by calling 303-271-6620 or email  Please book as far in advance as possible.
