Speaking Engagements and Events

Miranda and I are available for lectures, workshops, consultations and in-services on a wide variety of permaculture topics.  Popular lectures are: An Introduction to Permaculture (with Power Point visuals), Composting Techniques for Everyone (demonstration), Regenerative Living, Wildlife Demystified, and The Importance of Planting Natives,  although we talk about much more (just ask!).  In-services for teachers can be paired with a consultation on a school garden.  Please contact for appearance fees at dianeckennedy@prodigy.net, rather than using the comments section of this blog which can be unreliable.
