Zoom Talk For Garden Clubs

Just a quick message from a garden club last night after I gave a talk for them via Zoom…

Hi Darren,

We would just like to thank you for a very enjoyable and fun talk this evening for our first Zoom meeting!

Think we can say that everyone enjoyed it, we have already had positive feedback from some of the members, obviously the way forward at the moment!

We were certainly very pleased with the turn out for the first virtual meeting!

 

If you are a garden club speaker and want to give it a try, then please do get in touch!

More than happy to help you find a way to make meetings possible.

The books I’ve listed are not all about gardening, but worth a look through and an order anyway as they are wonderful and have seen me through lockdown – and I hope they bring you some joy too!  Check out the books I recommend here.
