VCE Speakers Bureau

The VCE Master Gardener Public Education program offers many classes for free each month. Please see our current Public Education offerings in order to determine if one of our scheduled programs might meet the needs of your group.

Registration for public programs is available at:

In addition, we offer recorded presentations on a variety of topics related to best management practices for gardening, sustainable landscaping, and urban agriculture through our Master Gardener Virtual Classroom.

If the above opportunities do not meet your needs and you would like an Extension Master Gardener to speak directly to your group, please review the following requirements and then  complete the form below.

  • This service is offered to Arlington and Alexandria organizations and residents only for a minimum $50 fee.
  • The fee, and any additional expenses for program materials and supplies, are the responsibility of the host organization.
  • All presentations are currently conducted through Zoom or similar virtual meeting platform, which the host organization is responsible for providing.


Checks should be made out to “Treasurer, Virginia Tech” with “Master Gardener Speaker” in the memo line. Checks must be mailed to: VCE Office, 3308 S. Stafford St., Arlington VA 22206.

Please allow at least 3 months advance notice. We will make our best effort to find a speaker for your request but cannot guarantee that one of our volunteers will be available.
