- Plant Course Participant

"This is a wonderful course. I brought my 4 children (ages 6, 8, 11, & 12) with me to the class. We all had a wonderful time. The material, presentation, and especially the cooking portion at the end kept all the kids engaged the whole time. The kids particularly enjoyed the walking tour/plant identification 'hunt,' and getting to gather the plants used to make the meal later."
- Brian W.
