Did a SUPERB job of educating our Master Gardeners!

You did a SUPERB job of educating our Master Gardeners last week…they were fascinated with the information you provided and appreciate the knowledge and practical experience that you shared with them. In addition, you taught the class with such enthusiasm and energy that most wanted to go right home and start their Spring gardening!

Extremely knowledgeable about her craft!

Ellen Zachos is not only very entertaining, she is extremely knowledgeable about her craft. She draws you into her passion for foraged plants and holds your attention easily, even though I had never considered this topic to be of interest to me. Now I know better!
