Such great energy!

I've known Jan for several years, but had never had the opportunity to hear her speak until now. She makes the most mundane gardening fact or activity fun again! I've not seen the kind of energy she exudes from behind the microphone in a speaker in a long time. The time just flew right by, and she spoke for a long time, as far as garden talks go. One thing I liked in particular was that she was just as willing to learn from the audience as she was to share her own knowledge. Well done.

Three of us drove an hour to check out Jan's skill. Great pictures, ideas and presentation. Now I'm going to recommend her to the area clubs I am a member of.
