Speaking Engagements


Please feel free to contact me on details for speaking to your group or organization. You can also find me on the national website at Great Garden Speakers

I speak on a number of garden topics from my blog such as gardening with chickens, styling, and vintage container design. One of my favorite subjects is Provence, and how to create your own "French Country Living," no matter where you call home.

"As the Seminar Manager for the 2016 SF Garden Show, I was so pleased to have Bonnie Jo Manion as a guest speaker. Her topic was "The Magic of Provence" and it was a huge hit with the crowd.
