    Great Class! I learned so much about both hot and cold process soap making. I feel it prepared me to attempt it own my own. He clearly explained all the steps and gave lots of tips and tricks based on his personal experiences, both what to do and what not to do. Much of what he discussed, I feel like you wouldn't learn just by reading a book or trying a soap recipe. He made everyone feel welcome and gladly answered all the questions as they came up. I would definitely recommend taking this class.

    This class was well attended and very informative on both soap making processes. Paul, the instructor, was well organized and had printouts ready to go and had a casual teaching style which I loved. I can’t wait to make my own soap!!

    Great experience. Class was casual, homey and very informative. Paul (who is a high school teacher) has a nice teaching style and is very open to questions and discussion. A lot of good information in a short time. Getting to see his hives and watch him pull the bee covered and honey filled frames was fun.

    Overall, it was a very informative class and I received all of the information I was looking for. I am disappointed, however, since the class advertises, "What's Provided: A syllabus containing class notes and a plethora of resources for you as you start your chicken keeping journey. Farm-Fresh Eggs to take home. There will be a drawing and 2 students will walk away with a booklet on beginning chicken keeping." No one received any eggs to take home and there wasn't a drawing for 2 students to take home a book. Those were part of the reason I chose this class, so very disappointed in that.

    This was a great intro to bee keeping. Full of useful information that can get anyone interested in bee keeping. Wish I could have taken it earlier in the year and been able to get some bees for 2019. I guess will get ready for 2020.

    This was an excellent, informative class that gave me a ton of practical information on all basic aspects of chicken owning. There were a lot of new facts as well as great tips for starting in our area and a bevy of additional resources to check out. I am glad I opted for this class as it made me feel much more prepared for chicken ownership.

    The farm was so sweet, Paul was so humble and a down to earth funny guy and a great teacher. Had a syllabus and an agenda. Definitely a great class I learned so much about raising chickens. It is a great class for people wanting to get chickens as well as who already have them. I have three week old birds and it was such good information on choosing birds, coops and runs, feed, eggs, and health issues. Is an interactive class so any questions you have or anything to contribute is great. At the end we got to view the chickens and their home on the farm. Paul also have some great resources to continue learning.

    It was a pleasure learning about chickens from Paul! He gave information that was highly applicable to raising chickens in this region, easy tricks, health things to look for, places to find free resources, recommended books and a living example of how chickens are cared for at his urban farm. He even gave us eggs to take home to try! Thanks Paul. I would love to take another class from you in the future!

    This is a great class for anyone considering or planning on having backyard chickens. Paul is very knowledgeable on the subject and gave a great overview to help get started with owning chickens. I am more comfortable knowing what to expect after he outlined important information on selection, feeding, needs, and preventative measures to keep healthy birds.

    Paul said that this was his first Dabble class and that he was nervous...but he's a PRO!
    He gives a good class...he's organized, informed and has an easy-going way about him. I learned a lot and had a great time!
    He really knows a lot about the subject and fielded our rapid-fire questions with ease.
    He can really "talk turkey" about chickens!
