2019 WNC Gardening Symposium in Flat Rock, NC

Ruth Gonzalez from Weaverville, NC - 10/07/2019 19:16:51

IMarianne Willburns talk was inspirational with practical advice on how to achieve the look you want by honing in on the qualities of what you love about a certain look and then figuring out how to achieve that vibe while remaining within your budget or smaller space. We were able to chat with Marianne and she was an absolutely delightful plant-lover. Within seconds she was lusting over a cryptomeria, and commenting on the colors and textures of the plants we had on display for Reems Creek Nursery at the symposium. We both bought her book and separately dived right in that evening when we got home from the symposium. I thought she was a fantastic speaker and I loved her common sense approach to gardening. Just start!

2019 WNC Gardening Symposium in Flat Rock, North C

Susan Sanborn from North Carolina - 10/07/2019 16:44:30

Marianne was one of 5 speakers at our Symposium for Master Gardeners. Her talk was about “Big Dreams, Small Gardens” and given mid-afternoon during what I like to call “the sleepy hour”! Marianne had my attention from the get go! She was engaging and made sense to my sometimes overwhelmed gardening brain! Everything she talked about I could handle and she made it so easy. I walked away inspired and with visions of my garden I know I can achieve! Awesome speaker!

Marianne's presentation on the use of tropical plants in our gardens was delightful and informative! She offered our club so many presentation options so we look forward to having her back to speak again.

Our club was dubious about Marianne's talk on foraging, but were soon captivated by her knowledge and compelling delivery and found themselves with information they hadn't realized they wanted.

great speaker

We all learned some new ideas for our gardens and new ways of thinking about our projects. I would highly recommend Marianne to come speak to any group. This is the 2nd time and 2nd topic I have heard her. Both times were interesting and informative.
