Kelcie R.Square Foot Gardening
The class was very informative and in a casual and friendly environment. Everyone felt comfortable participating. The teacher is very knowledgeable and clearly loves gardening and answered all of my questions. He had lots of fun tips and tricks. It was fun seeing his garden and hearing exactly how he does it.
Scott G.Composting How-To
Everything you need to get started. Teacher was well prepared with slides, handouts, and his personal experience composting. Would recommend this class to anyone starting out. He will steer you around mistakes and set you up with a system that works.
Tami L.Winter Gardening: Low Tunnel Class
This was an excellent class! The teacher shared a lot of gardening information, and specifically, how to plant and maintain a garden in the winter. This is very helpful since I live where it gets very cold and snowy during the winter! I plan on using his many tips and his handout to grow food to eat this winter. I've gone to classes that he's taught before, and I'm still impressed by his knowledge and ability to share this information with us! Great experience!
