Melinda Myers To Speak At Eighth Annual Gardens Luncheon On May 12

March 31, 2011

The Center for Communication, Hearing and Deafness invites you to the Eighth Annual Gardens Luncheon, “Birds, Butterflies & Blossoms,” on Thursday, May 12, to discover the secrets to creating a beautiful habitat and selecting plants suitable for attracting birds, butterflies and other beneficial visitors. The luncheon will be held from 11:00 AM to 1:30 PM, followed by a special 30 minute Q & A session with guest speaker Melinda Myers. The luncheon will take place at the Woman’s Club of Wisconsin, 813 E. Kilbourn Ave., Milwaukee, and all proceeds from this event support the children’s programs at the Center, which help kids with hearing loss develop critical language and literacy skills. Sign language interpreting and real-time captioning will be provided to ensure that all guests can enjoy the presentation.

 

Melinda Myers, best known for her gardener friendly and practical approach to gardening, has more than 30 years of horticulture experience in both hands-on and instructional settings. She has a master’s degree in horticulture, is a certified arborist, was a horticulture instructor with tenure and is on the board of directors for the International Society of Arboriculture. Each year, Melinda presents at many of the major flower shows and garden events, sharing her knowledge with gardeners from across the country. She is also an accomplished author, having written more than 20 books on gardening including Can’t Miss Small Space Gardening, the Birds & Blooms’ Ultimate Gardening Guide, and Jackson and Perkins’ Beautiful Roses Made Easy: Midwestern Edition. She also hosts “Melinda’s Garden Moments,” which airs on 50 network television stations throughout the United States as well as the program “Great Lakes Gardener” seen on PBS stations throughout the country. Melinda can even be heard on radio since launching “Melinda’s Garden Moments for Radio,” in 2010, which features syndicated audio tips that air on radio stations throughout the United States.

 

The event emcee this year is Tiffany Ogle, co-host of The Morning Blend on Today’s TMJ4. In addition to her extensive experience as a television host, Tiffany is also a professional actress, commercial model, and motivational speaker.
