Speaker’s Bureau

Norfolk Master Gardener Volunteers (NMGV) offer presentations on various gardening subjects through our Speaker’s Bureau. To make arrangements for a speaker, please contact the Norfolk Extension Office at 757-683-2816. Please request a specific topic, and provide information on the date, time, location, and approximate number of attendees.

The NMGV Speaker’s Bureau does not charge a fee for speakers. However, a donation from your organization will help Norfolk Master Gardeners with our educational outreach programs to children and adults throughout the City of Norfolk.
