I've been teaching gardening courses since 2014 in the Connecticut Community College system for both credit and non-credit adult education and as a corporate wellness consultant. My classes have included a 3 credit semester long course on fruit and vegetable production and adult education courses on numerous topics including vertical gardening, container gardening and preserving your harvest.
My experience teaching corporate wellness lunch time lectures at multiple companies has included a basic gardening 101 course plus courses on small space/container gardening and good bug/bad bug organic pest control.
I have been a master gardener since 2007 and grow as much food as possible in ten raised beds in my suburban yard. I grow many herbs for use in cooking, brewing tea and making medicinal potions. I also believe that you can never have too many flowers in your yard.
I started my weekly researched gardening blog in May of 2013. I have written many guest blog posts and have been a contributor to Organic Gardens Today online magazine.
Medical research has shown that gardening increases
Research has shown that employees who eat five or more servings of fruit and vegetables at least four times a week are 20 percent more likely to be productive. Absenteeism is 27 percent lower for employees who eat healthy.
Please contact me if you're interesting in my services as either a gardening speaker or are looking for a new contributor for gardening articles or guest blog posts.
