The New Hampshire Master Gardener Speakers Bureau

What is the Speakers Bureau?  

The New Hampshire Master Gardener Speakers Bureau is a group of Master Gardener volunteers who are available to speak to garden clubs, civic organizations, schools and other groups on a wide variety of topics from the world of gardening, horticulture, landscaping, and the environment. Speakers choose the topics in which they feel proficient and offer slideshow presentations to illustrate their talk.  

Who will be my speaker? 

All members of the Speakers Bureau are Master Gardener volunteers with knowledge and interest in the subjects in which they speak. When you choose a topic, we will work to find a speaker who is available on that date. Once you have a contract with the Speakers’ Bureau, we will provide a brief bio of your speaker for use in your publicity of the presentation event.

We welcome inquiries about availability of speakers and talks on particular subjects. The topics offered are listed below. A suggested donation of $50 per speaking engagement helps cover expenses associated with delivering the presentation. Checks should be made payable to UNHCE and mailed to 329 Mast Road, Suite 115, Goffstown, NH 03045. This fee helps defray the costs of speaker travel, professional development, equipment, etc.

Please note that not all topics may be available for your requested date. In the event a speaker is not available for your selected topic, we will call to discuss alternate options.

Available Presentations:

  • Composting
  • Community Gardening
  • Container Gardening
  • Pest Management in the Garden
  • Bringing Pollinators to the Garden
  • Putting the Garden to Bed
  • Seed Starting
  • Growing Strawberries
  • Vegetable Gardening

Due to limited staff resources, requests for speakers are not being accepted at this time. Previously scheduled talks will not be affected by this temporary cessation. Please check back in fall, 2018 for an update.
