Giving a presentation today...

Pull up a chair and grab a cup of Java for a cozy chat about what's on your mind and what's happening in your neck of the woods. This is a strictly for fun non-gardening topics.

Giving a presentation today...

Postby Heidi S » Aug 09, 2012 11:15 am

Some months ago I volunteered to do a Master Gardener presentation at our local horticultural fair, the Prince George Exhibition, which is 100 years old this year. And suddenly it is today!

My topics are 'Winterizing your Zone 3 garden', and 'What are Hardiness Zones, anyway'? My friend and MG colleague Corrine and I have been trolling the internet and our assorted books and magazines for tips and tricks, and have cobbled together a hodge-podge of borrowed facts and ideas, not one of them original, you know! So, now we are on deck at 3 pm on a stage in the Home Arts and Horticultural pavilion. EEEK!

Hey, we get volunteer hour credits for the preparation work and the presentation, as well as a chance to totally make fools of ourselves. Just hoping the audience, if there is any, is kind and forgiving!

Wish me luck!
Heidi S,

Yup. Just add magnesium and cinnamon. All will be fine.

Good luck.

If you can, and if you have the notes/slides, post your presentation for us. I too think you did very well.
