These slide-illustrated lectures are each about one hour long and are presented by projecting two images simultaneously on the screen.
   I lecture nationwide to garden clubs, botanical garden symposia and other organizations. See schedule for this year’s programs. If you would like to arrange for a lecture, please e-mail gordonhayward@comcast.net or call 802-387-4766 in Vermont.
