Speakers Bureau

Crow Wing County Master Gardeners are great speakers!

Master Gardeners in Crow Wing County offer presentations on many different horticulture-related topics.

Your group can request a Master Gardener to present virtually or in-person, any event where there is an audience eager to learn about gardening.

The presentations offered by Crow Wing County Master Gardeners are scheduled through the Program Coordinator. Normal scheduling requires at least two weeks advanced notice. Every effort will be made to find a speaker for every request received but please keep in mind that Master Gardeners are volunteers. Usually an honorarium is suggested for a public presentation.
