Judith Irven: Vermont Garden Speaker
Talks and Workshops
I offer a collection of talks on the art of designing beautiful and satisfying gardens in harmony with New England’s climate and landscape. Every talk is illustrated throughout with exquisite photographs of real gardens.
For gardeners who want to learn how to design their own gardens I also provide hands-on group workshops.
I have extensive experience as a garden speaker and educator, including regular engagements at the Vermont Flower Show and Shelburne Museum‘s SpringFest, and for numerous garden clubs and other organizations around the state. For the past decade I have also been a guest lecturer for the Master Gardener class offered by University of Vermont Extension, where I teach Sustainable Home Landscaping.
