Here's what people are saying about Michael's talks:
Your talk on “The Seven Deadly Sins of the Modern American Landscape - And How to Avoid Them!,” was highly entertaining and educational for all levels of gardeners. Being an association that represents the green industry, you can imagine how many different segments we serve. I can honestly say that everyone was extremely happy with your appearance and professional demeanor. My only regret is that I didn't order a large enough room - we had people standing in the aisles and out the door!"
"Thank you very much for the appealing and informative program 'Old House, Old Garden' you presented here for our Garden Weekend Event. I know from talking informally with our visitors throughout the afternoon that they enjoyed the talk and the opportunity to meet you in person. Your program was particularly effective at helping home gardeners to
Thanks for presenting the program "Old House, Old Garden" at the Ohio Historical Society in Columbus, OH on November 5, 2005. You came well prepared with an illustrated presentation on how to match a period property with period landscaping, using wonderful examples of different types of architecture, combined with different plants, trees, flowers, and lawn ornaments. The audience appreciated your insight into the topic, and also enjoyed your humor and your manner of presentation. They especially loved the chance to ask questions, and the frank answers to the many queries you received. All and all, I would highly recommend you as a speaker at any garden event.
The presentation offered valuable information to every homeowner, and achieved a perfect balance of entertainment and education. Audiences of both genders were amused and informed as you gently poked fun at common landscaping mistakes, while offering realistic, affordable, do-it-yourself alternatives and improvements. We appreciated your knowledge, wit and style, and hope to work with you again in the future.
