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, rather than using the comments section of this blog which can be unreliable.

Monthly Open Tours:(the third Sunday at 10 am sharp).

Our last two Open Tours of the year will be held the weekend before Thanksgiving, Sat. and Sun. Nov. 18 and 19th, at 10 am. Please RSVP to

Monthly Workshops: We asked what you’d like to learn about, and we listened! Cost of the program is $20 per person. You can use the PayPal ‘Donate’ button on the homepage to pre-pay, or pay when you come. Please RSVP to, even if you’ve said so on a Meetup.  Homemade vegetarian refreshments will be provided; students may wander Finch Frolic Garden before or after the program. We look forward to seeing you there!

Nov. 18th and 19th, 8am – 2pm: Annual Marketplace, and Last Open Tours of the Year.  

Our Marketplace is where we sell unique, hand-made food mostly harvested from our permaculture garden. Baked goods, canned goods, frozen fruit and fruit juices, seeds to eat and seeds to plant, knick-knacks, plants, and more. Come visit and help support our very small business and our pursuit of educating about permaculture. 

Although the garden will be closed to tours from Thanksgiving until March 1, Miranda and I are available for consultations, lectures and events.
