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...
