Book a Talk With Billy

Book Billy Goodnick for Your Event

Billy has been delivering his informative talks to audiences around the country, unraveling the mysteries of turning everyday yards into beautiful, useful, sustainable gardens. But what sets him apart from other speakers is his stand-up comic delivery and contagious enthusiasm for garden design.

Whether espousing his design philosophy in a dimmed auditorium, leading imagination-awakening tours through botanic gardens, or working “live” surrounded by plants, Billy gives audiences the tools they need to run home and solve their own design problems.

“Customers who attended Billy’s talk at Flora Grubb Garden gave us a ton of positive feedback. (And there were a ton of customers here! A packed house — standing-room only.) Billy’s point-by-point breakdown of the all-green design featured in our promotion of the event helped the crowd understand why it worked so well and generated lots of sales of the ingredients, much to our delight. Several people remarked on how hilarious Billy is — and it’s a rare garden speaker who wins ’em with humor. He stayed for a couple of hours afterwords and made sure to answer everyone’s questions and approached every question with kindness and thoroughness.” Jason Dewees, Events Manager, Flora Grubb Gardens, San Francisco
