We truly enjoyed having Jan Bills as our March program speaker. She provided many helpful tips for "Gardening with comfort, ease and simplicity". Jan is very passionate about gardening and being good stewards of our natural resources.
We have already talked with her about inviting her back for another program this fall..

Jan gave a talk at our local master gardener society meeting earlier this month. Jan is enthusiastic, fun to listen to and very informative. I could have listened for at least another two hours! Jan speaks from her heart and with loads of knowledge.

I've contracted Jan to speak twice as part of our Michigan State University - Tollgate Farm - Evenings in the Garden program. She is very informative, sharing her wisdom in her engaging, funny, and lively manner. The whole audience, including myself, enjoyed our time with her immensely.
