Talks

Talks are available at Distinctive Gardens or we can visit your location.


Many of our talks include a Prezi presentation as accompaniment. We have our own computer and projector for those talks.

Demonstrations are an option.

Often examples are the main feature of talks.

Most talks can be tailored to run between 20 minutes to 1 hour.

If you wish to make a morning or afternoon of it we can provide a catered lunch in the pavilion.

Wine tasting and/or musical entertainment and a tour may be added to create a longer event for your group.
