LOOKING FOR A SPEAKER FOR YOUR MEETING OR A GARDEN ADVICE CLINIC AT YOUR EVENT?
Master Gardeners of Ottawa-Carleton (MGOC) is a group of volunteers who provide unbiased horticultural advice and expertise to the home gardener. We provide this advice on an ad hoc basis by running advice clinics at various venues and answering whatever gardening questions come our way AND by giving prepared presentations on specific topics to organizations on request.
Invite a Master Gardener to speak to your group or at your event
invite a team of MGs to set up an advice table at your event.
BOOK A SPEAKER
MGOC can provide in-person presentations at your venue or virtually via Zoom.
We have some talks ready to go – see the list of Presentation Topics by clicking on the link below. Talks can be edited for length and content depending on the expectations of the audience. Other topics can be prepared on request but will need more lead time.
MGOC usually receives an honorarium for these presentations.

BOOK AN ADVICE CLINIC
MGOC is pleased to offer advice clinics at Farmers’ markets, community fairs, trade shows, plant sales, seedy Saturdays and similar events. We set up a table staffed by 2 or 3 Master Gardeners and answer gardening questions for people attending the event.
If your organization is having a garden-related event and you would like to offer a garden advice clinic, we may be able to help you!
With enough advance notice (2 weeks is good), we are usually able to arrange a clinic when requested and space is offered free-of-charge. We do not sell anything.
