Speakers Bureau

Master Gardener Volunteers offer lectures on a wide array of subjects for gardeners. Additional topics can often be prepared to meet a particular group’s needs or interest.

The Master Gardeners are avid gardeners who have received extensive training through Cornell Cooperative Extension.

The talks are 45 minutes in duration, followed by 10-15 minutes alloted for questions from the group. A fee of $50 per speaker is requested to help defray the cost of our numerous community projects. Checks may be made out to “Cornell Cooperative Extension Dutchess County” and can be mailed to our office in advance or handed to the speaker at the program. Click here for a list of lecture topics.
