I have spent 13 years gaining a depth of farming experience and I love to share my knowledge with others! I have given talks and workshops on a range of topics and developed several resources to go along with them (You can download some of them here.) I focus on keeping my talks engaging with visual aids, print and online resources, and a combination of lecture and interactive conversation.
If you are hosting a conference or workshop and are looking for a knowledgeable, dynamic presenter, call or email me. You can see topics I’ve covered in the past below, and I’m always up for a new challenge.
