    A great intro on what perennials they are growing that are well suited for our climate, how they are used, and their growing requirements. Having only grown a few perennial vegetables already, the introduction with slideshow was really helpful for me. I am hoping to plant many of the varieties he presented. I also felt his presentation was clear, well organized, and easy to follow. Now I have a better idea of which perennials to research for my property. Thank you!!

    To attend to a family medical situation, I will not be able to stay for the second session. I'm paid up, so I hope someone can take my place.
