    It was a great class. Informative and helpful. Todd answered individual questions at the end, and offered advice. Just finding the place ( The Scrumptious Pantry (The Sumptuous Pantry) was fantastic. One of Chicago's hidden treasures.

    Great class, learned a lot of actually useful ways to properly prepare and create my own city garden and I feel i can start asap. Very amenable presenter and teacher, and delicious treats after the course to a reasonably hungry after-work crowd :)

    I thought the class was great. We covered a lot of basics and there was plenty of time for questions!
