When you first meet Carol, you might think she's a laid-back, ho-hum kind of gal. And she sort of is, but not in the way you might think. She's someone who is secure in her own skin, knows her stuff, and hits you with the funnies in subtle ways that few can pull off with such panache. Her tales in the garden hit home and ring true, and while not sugar coating gardening, she makes you want to join her in her garden. HER garden, because believe me, after hearing her talk about her adventures there, you'll want to be there too. Hearing her speak is just plain fun.
She's a gem!

Our Hoosier Hillsides Master Gardener's organization needed a great garden speaker for our 10th Annual Spring Tonic program held on March 4, 2017. Our search lead us to Carol Michel & what a great decision we made!! Carol opened her presentation reading to the group a humorous story, keeping the guests in stitches. Her presentation was full of wonderful garden vegetable information. All of the guest's evaluations gave her rave reviews. Some said, "Excellent", "I could have listened to her all day", "humorous", " Have her come back". That last comment will happen at some point. Carol helped make our program a success. If you are considering a speaker for your program look no further. Your guests will thank you.
facts & fun
