EVENTS

We hope to see you at one or more of our upcoming speaking engagements exploring and celebrating Cultivating Place and the themes of both  The Earth in Her Hands and Under Western Skies (Timber Press April 27, 2021) 

If you have any questions about future events please send us an email!

Every talk, workshop, or panel I lead or take part in is different to meet the needs and interests of the groups with which I work, however these are some of the topics about which I am passionate.

Presentations generally range from 30 - 90 minutes with time for robust Question and Answer:

  • CULTIVATING PLACE: Gardens/Gardeners as Intersectional Agents of Change

  • THE EARTH IN HER (OUR) HANDS - 75 Extraordinary Women Working in the World of Plants

  • WOMEN IN HORTICULTURE Changing the World (including You in your Garden)

  • DECOLONIZE Y(OUR) GARDENS How to Cultivate True Inclusion/Bio-Diversity

  • PUBLIC GARDENS & the Power to Lead Change

  • UNDER WESTERN SKIES Visionary Gardens/Gardeners of Place (& Why This Matters)

 

(If you are interested in Jennifer Jewell being a speaker for your event, please send an inquiry email with all relevant information)
