Online Course achieve its purpose

Faith is a very good speaker and trainer. The course gave me very good information to start off about organic farming. Although it is online, the experience is just as good and achieved its purpose. It is even better for me as I would have trouble making time to travel down in person. Hope to see more online courses soon!

Online class is interesting, engaging and motivating

Course was online due to the circuit breaker and 2 hours was saved on commuting! Other than that, the lesson is interesting, engaging and motivating. I ordered my supplies to start my own home growing the next day after the course! Faith knows when and what to dilute and when to go into details. Would very much love to attend the intermediate and advance class soon!

Ms Faith is Great

The information in the online course was very good and practical, really like a how-to guide, which was perfect. No time wasted. Ms Faith was great at answering the myriad of questions and was able to explain a lot whilst still keeping things simple and easy to understand. Thank you!

Love the explanation clear and simple

It is the simple explanations together with providing actual materials required for kick-starting to plant a veg that made the course interesting. Also the follow-up of providing the slides used in class is very helpful.
