Would any of you out there like to come to our local NPA neighborhood group and do a talk /presentation?
We can offer a reasonable stipend.
We may need someone for the last Wed in Sept this year, or any month next year. (last Wed of the month)
Pick your favorite topic or two and let me know.
thanks
Judy
Suggestions of others you know are also appreciated.

I had no idea what NPA meant.
I was going to ask.
Thanks bboy and Judy.
Perennials play a small part in my garden, but I enjoy them in other gardener's gardens. I don't want the maintenance and down time when they don't look good. Ten months out of the year they're a detriment to the over all look of things in most cases.

RE: Northwest Perennial Alliance

NPA is not just about Perennials, maybe it's time to change their name...
they established the original "perennial" border at Bellevue botanic gardens and even at the beginning there were lots of trees and shrubs and even more now that it is being renovated.
I stay in that group mainly because of the garden tours, my neighborhood group, and the lectures, but also am in the breakaway group the Hardy Plant Soc of WA. (I stay out of the politics)

So any speaker for our neighborhood group can talk about anything gardening.
Personally I'm hoping to get back on more Hort/plant/soil topics for our local group as it seems we've been dominated by lots of artsy crafty garden decoration topics this year.

We have some new members and they would appreciate some info on soil structure, correct planting methods, pruning, etc. Hint.. Hint..

If you're interested we should talk off the board, e-mailing via my member page for example.
