I love speaking to garden groups, library friends or any community organization interested in plants, gardening or garden writing. Currently, I offer four talks:
- Plants with Minnesota Roots: 15 Heritage Plants to Grow in Northern Gardens
- Low-Stress Tomatoes: Tricks and Tips for Beginning Tomato Growers
- Gardening 2020: Trends Coming to Your Garden Soon
- Writing the Garden: A Workshop for Writers and Readers
I’m developing more talks all the time. If your group is interested in a different topic, let’s talk!
For 2019, I charge $125 for an hour-long talk in Minnesota, plus mileage to any location more than 25 miles from my home in St. Paul. I appreciate the chance to sell copies of my book at the talk. Speaking engagements outside of Minnesota are $250 plus travel expenses. To arrange an event, please email me at mary at maryschier dot com.
