First time attending class

My first time attending a gardening class and enjoyed it very much.Trainer is friendly and taught us well. Social distancing is practised and makes me very comfortable. Enjoyed the materials that I can bring back to grow as well as hands-on practical learning

Enjoyed the herbs course

I attended the class during the Circuit Breaker. The trainer is very professional and well-spoken. Though it was an online class via zoom. I enjoyed my interaction with classmates. The trainer also ensured we have many opportunities to ask questions. I finally learn how to grow difficult herbs...
