“I enjoyed the instructor! Very entertaining and informative. On a scale of 1–5, he gets a 6.”

“The teacher really knew her subject and knew this garden—great ideas for companion planting.”

“[The instructor's] enthusiasm was catching, and I appreciated all the hands-on help. My least favorite thing about the class is that it's over!”
