Loved this class. A lot of material was covered and Taj's passion for soil was transferred to an enthusiastic class of students. Can't wait to improve the soil in my own backyard!

Great class. My mind was blown to understand what is happening under the soil! I look at it completely differently now! Taj is a passionate, engaging teacher and I loved the hands on making of a compost pile and learning of what makes a good one.

It was a great workshop with the lovely Taj, very informative and interesting. I loved how this workshop was more hands on then others i have attended, and i have use some of what i learnt with Taj recently which really came in handy. Both my boss and i would highly recommended this workshop and any workshop run by Taj. we look forwards to doing more in the future.
