Lectures and Articles on Landscape Design & Horticultural Topics

I am available to write for publication horticultural and landscape design related articles on a wide range of topics. A sample of my previously published articles are posted above. Please contact me to discuss your editorial needs.

I am also associated with the Westchester County Cornell Cooperative Extension's Master Gardener Speaker's Bureau. I have several lecture topics currently available through this program including ones on Rain Gardens, Stormwater Management and Deer Protection. The CCE Speaker's Bureau has over 50 topics available from a group of highly informed and dynamic Master Gardeners. Please contact the office at 914.285.4620 and ask for Patris Beamon. She will send you out a brochure with a complete list of the currently available topics and speakers.

Finally, I am an instructor at the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx. I teach a series of lectures and hands-on workshops covering the use of the computer in the landscape design process. Here is the list of classes that I taught at NYBG this winter:

[LAN 280] Intro Lecture on Office Tools and Filemaker Database
[LAN 281] Intro Lecture on Design Tools (Using Photoshop and Illustrator for CAD)
[LAN 284] Marketing Your Business on the Web
[LAN 908] Laptop Workshop: Creating Elevations and Site Details with Photoshop
[LAN 909] Laptop Wokshop: Creating Master Plans with Illustrator
[GWP 230] Garden Blogs - Write On!

I am available to consult with you on any of these topics, to review your business workflow and to make suggest appropriate software solutions. Of course, I can provide one-on-one tutoring & instruction, as needed.
