Engaging, Top Notch Presentation
Jane Mignone, Barrington Garden Club from Barrington, RI - 02/24/2017 08:23:08
Kathy’s knowledge and passion for landscape design was evident during her ground cover presentation to our garden club last week. Kathy is a dynamic speaker: she was engaging, interesting, and reached out to all levels of gardeners in our large group. She was well prepared and imparted a wealth of information accompanied by many lovely photos. Kathy appears to keep very current and up to date in her field. She shared many new developments in ground covers and provided detailed resource handouts. She has a great website and blog too. Her organizational skills and professionalism were impressive, from initial contact right through her presentation and email follow ups.
All in all, Kathy gave a top notch presentation!

I am a member of the Mystic Garden Club. Kathy Connolly was the speaker for our monthly luncheon meeting last week. Her topic was foundation plantings and it was most interesting--and educational. Kathy has a lively sense of humor which made the talk that much more interesting. We would recommend her to any other garden clubs or groups looking for an interesting talk.

Foundation Garden Presentation
Karen Geisler from Old Lyme - 10/05/2015 23:57:12
This summer, I was fortunate to see Kathy Connolly when she presented to the East Lyme Garden Club. She spoke on how to enhance one's home landscape with foundation gardens and plantings. It wasn't so much about what to plant as it was about what the plantings, their sizes and shapes, mean to the overall look of the home. It was enlightening to me, and a very lively and interesting presentation. I highly recommend this program.
Landscaping for a Better Lake

Kathy's presentation to the East Haddam lake community showed a great deal of preparation so that it was specific to the needs of the group. She explained in easily understandable terms the importance of landscaping to help minimize storm water runoff problems. Kathy's easy going style and ability to answer questions to the level of the listener encouraged the audience's enthusiasm and knowledge for wise landscaping. Excellent presentation!
