Please respect our copyright in your use of materials you download from this site. They are for your personal use and not for reproduction beyond that use without our written permission. If you would like to reproduce something here for a non-profit or volunteer educational project we will almost certainly be glad to allow that. However, please consult us before any use.
If you miss us in person here's a way you can glean information from our outlines, lists and other presentation materials.
The more we share with other gardeners the more we learn.
In addition, we sometimes find time to go beyond a day's topic, or discuss related materials that are too bulky and/or specialized to copy for an entire group.
You can download these materials* we have offered at various talks.

*Please note that these downloads are outlines, lists, charts and diagrams, some with and some without illustrations. They are not all the hundreds of images you saw at our presentation, not the "slide show." We're sorry we can't share those. They are massive files sans words -- impossible to upload and download, and you would still need us for the narrative! However, we are working to remedy that: Look into and support our Webinar project. There you can help us decide which of those presentations to post first as we build a webinar library of such presentations.
