Darn! All my live talks and appearances have been cancelled due to the pandemic. While I’m sad that I can’t meet folks in person, I’m working hard to make the best of it and create some virtual online events! I’ve been doing a lot of radio shows, podcasts, and webinars too so I’ve included those here for your enjoyment.
Please do check back often as new events are being added regularly.
Garden Therapy Online Learning: VISIT THE COURSE SITE. I will be developing more content here for those who want to enjoy DIY garden projects, natural beauty crafting, and organic gardening.
Botanical Beauty Holiday Gifts Workshop: SEE THE COURSE. Yes, this is a holiday gifts workshop, but it’s not Christmas themed! You can make botanical beauty gifts like bath bombs, tub teas, lotion bars, and lip balm no matter what time of year it is. And we could certainly use some of these fun projects to make and use right now! I’ve opened registration again to allow anyone to join that wants to.
Natural Beauty 5-Day Mini Course by email: REGISTER HERE.
Have Stephanie Rose Speak at Your Event
I could talk about plants ALL DAY LONG. Seriously. Just try me. I’ve done it many times and I’d love to do it for your event or trade show.
I can tell my story of how I transformed my life, health, and my small urban garden all at once.
I can speak about creating playful and engaging gardens for children, small spaces, healing gardens, and more.
Holiday projects and ideas for year-round crafting from the garden are fun for “make-and-take” workshops.
Contact Stephanie for a list of current speaking topics, hands-on workshops, and live DIY demonstrations.
