Audience Reviews of Chapman
If you love plants, have a good sense of humor and enjoy meeting fellow gardening enthusiasts we are meant to meet!
Gardening should be FUN and that's what I'm all about; learn while you laugh, and never take yourself (or your garden) too seriously
Engaging and Informative Speaker
Kim Van Atta from Newcastle, WA - 04/29/2017 21:40:56
Karen's presentation style is engaging and her knowledge of both plants and design is extensive. She provides specific and concrete ideas regarding plant selection, planting technique and design. These bits of knowledge make it easy for audience members to transfer learning to their own garden projects. Her wit and wisdom make her a gem of a speaker!
Makes Her Design Formula Easy

Karen's talk made her audience feel they could actually duplicate the principles she was teaching. Our club was unanimous in her praise.
Fun and informative talk

Karen's talk at the Hardy Plant Society of Oregon was clear and informative with just enough humor to keep it fun. Her slides were beautiful and ideas for mixing foliage plants in the garden usable.

Karen gave the HPSO in Portland, OR a wonderful presentation on her methods of mixing foliage. Easy enough for beginning gardeners to understand, but interesting enough for experienced garden designers such as myself. Karen's interjection of wry British wit make her talks all the more enjoyable!

Karen was the guest speaker today at the HPSO winter lecture and I thoroughly enjoyed her 1 hour talk. I hope to take one of her online classes as a result.
