Angelo gave me lots of valuable information on setting up and maintaining my small courtyard garden. Lots of good ideas I can put into practise, The course was good value for money and the presentation was very comprehensive. I would recommend it to anyone with a small garden. Thanks Angelo.
I thoroughly enjoyed this class. The presenter, Angelo, really knew his topics and no question fazed him. He was very generous with his time and I learned so much. The notes were great and I was very grateful that Angelo did not read his power point slides to us and spoke to them instead. I appreciated the depth of his knowledge and his ability to communicate it so well. This was my first gardening class and I will be returning to learn more! I have successfully started my vegie garden, no produce yet but good signs of leafy greens on their way.
