Garden Speaking, Gardening Talks and Classes 2013

peter donegan garden speaker, peter donegan

Whilst my early working days did include teaching horticulture, the last years have seen that skill recalled, with a mild bit of a twist. The talker of gardens that I am, alongside Niall O’Keeffe I host The SodShow, Ireland’s only Garden Radio Show on 103.2 Dublin City Fm. In October 2012 it was awarded Irelands Best Podcast.

From a horticultural talking public perspective, 2012 saw me speaking at everything from music festivals and one-off public gardening demonstrations, to private gardening classes and demonstrations and talks to Gardening and Horticultural societies.

Bookings and inquiries are now being taken for 2013.

Gardening Classes, Garden Talks and Speaking 2012

peter donegan

Whilst my previous working life did include teaching horticulture, the last few years have seen that skill been recalled into action. Public gardening demonstrations, certificate classes to schools in Dublin, garden sessions with Fingal Libraries and talks to Gardening and Horticultural societies all took place throughout 2011.

Live in the heart of the Dublin City Centre, in a community hall, in the middle of a field or in the library – every venue and almost every possible topic was covered.

Bookings and inquiries are now being taken for 2012.

Gardening Courses & Classes

peter donegan

Garden courses and classes started taking place in March 2010 after I was asked if I would run one. Primarily, it was very much a case of as demand came in and so on they continued. The immediate demand seems to be of the grow your own subject, but other types are covered too.

Some have decided to get the interest of a group of 6 – 8 people [plus] together and then ask me to run a class on a specific date in a specific place and that has worked very well. Other than that, I don’t really have a set date or timeline upon when they happen it is more a case of if I get about 4 plus names in I will put a post up on the weblog and fill the group up to run one.
