Johnson County K-State Extension
Speakers Bureau

Do you need a speaker for your church, civic group or garden club? We have the speakers you are looking for on just about any topic. The Johnson County Extension Speakers' Bureau is a great resource for your club or group.

Our Extension agents, Extension Master Gardener Volunteers and Master Food Volunteers are university trained and can present on a wide range of topics such as:

  • nuisance wildlife control,
  • home insect control,
  • Emerald Ash Borer and Ash trees,
  • perennial flower gardening,
  • pruning,
  • lawn care,
  • small business and community development,
  • clutter busting,
  • basic organizational skills,
  • basic budgeting,
  • wise use of credit,
  • food safety and nutrition,
  • healthy tips in the kitchen
  • sleep: want it, need it, how to get it.

We can adapt our presentations to meet your group’s needs; from a short 20-minute presentation to a longer format, if needed. While there are no fees for a volunteer speaker, a donation to Johnson County Extension or the chosen volunteer organization is appreciated.

To schedule a speaker for your group, please contact the office. For more information on this service, call (913) 715-7000.
