This was a great course and it took me from knowing almost nothing about gardening to being confident in my new knowledge to start work on growing my own vegetables and herbs ?and also fired an interest in other forms of gardening different from the traditional. I now look forward to healthy and sustainable living thanks to this excellent comprehensive course. Susan G.
