Haglund's lectures are peppered with colorful anecdotes derived from her childhood on the farm and her every day garden coaching experiences working handinhand with gardeners empowering them in their gardens. Haglund's garden coaching, design insights and tips for gardening with pets are featured in several media sources including Organic Gardening Magazine, The New York Times, Sunset Magazine, The Seattle Times, Dog Park Wisdom, and HGTV's Landscaper's Challenge.

In addition to donating food regularly to local food banks from her own garden, she consults with community organizers, garden designers and food banks to assist them in building beautiful, functional, edible spaces. And, by working handinhand with gardeners, Haglund empowers others in working toward ending hunger.
