Great speaker

Michele Hackmeyer from Tallahassee, Florida - 12/04/2017 19:34:57

Carol was an excellent speaker! She was entertaining and informative. Her gardening happiness self-assessment is a great tool to remind us that gardening is supposed to be fun. Hail to Queen of the Hoes!

Fun and informative

What a pleasant person? Carol knows her horticulture and how to connect with gardeners through humor. Her talk held up a mirror to all the crazy things gardeners do to have the yard of their dreams. She made us nod our heads in agreement, elbow our friend next to us and laugh out loud with her gardening truths. It was such a treat to have her at our Master Gardener Conference.

A Feel-Good Delight

Kylee Baumle from Ohio - 03/22/2017 11:09:54

When you first meet Carol, you might think she's a laid-back, ho-hum kind of gal. And she sort of is, but not in the way you might think. She's someone who is secure in her own skin, knows her stuff, and hits you with the funnies in subtle ways that few can pull off with such panache. Her tales in the garden hit home and ring true, and while not sugar coating gardening, she makes you want to join her in her garden. HER garden, because believe me, after hearing her talk about her adventures there, you'll want to be there too. Hearing her speak is just plain fun.
