My love for horticulture started when I was a child. When my son was born it was a given that he would be with me while I visited nurseries. When he began school, I jumped at whatever chance I could to go on any field trip that involved nature. Since he attended a private school, my son offered to have me come speak to his class about plants, and thus my teaching career began. I taught a special little seminar every year as my son went from 2nd through 6th grade about plants and quickly became known as the Plant Lady among the students. As co-leader of my son’s cubscout den I again participated and led many of the activities related to nature. I also have participated in the Sierra Intermediate School Career Day where I have come and shared with students about my company and the career opportunities that are available to them in the Horticulture field.
If you or someone you know would like to have me come speak to children of any age about the wonders of plants, please fill out a contact form and we will get in touch about further arrangements.
