    Loved it! We learned a ton and met some great people. Sean, Lindsay and Johann are very knowledgeable and shared so much great information. The workshop was structured just enough for learning, but casual enough that we could ask questions. Hope to see you all again.

    This workshop was amazing! Sean, Lindsay, and Johann were all so knowledgable and down to earth and the way the workshop was structured was perfect. A couple of hours of theory, then the tour, design exercise and the most exciting part was the hands on activity. Can't wait to see what it will look like in a couple of years! I tend to spend hours reading books and learning theory and shy away from the intimidating parts of actually designing and taking action. But they made it so easy and fun and that was where I learned the most. I will definitely be more confident with future designs and implementation because of this course. It was also great meeting everyone who attended, look foward to seeing you all again at another event!

    Hi! I don't technically need a ride, but our family only has 1 car, and being able to leave my husband with the kids and the car for the day would make it nicer for them. So can I get a ride? Will offer gas money and can meet you nearby for the trip up, though it would be nice if I could get a ride to my house directly at end of day.

    I live in Cumberland County, so nearby would be up to a half hour or so...Salem or Lower Gloucester counties??

    Anyone making that trip?

    Hello everybody! I'm glad to see lots of interest in this course. It is shaping up to be a really great workshop. Some of you who have RSVP'd here on MeetUp have emailed me to confirm that you are attending, others have not. If you plan on attending please email me at Sean(at)WalshEcoDesign(dot)com. I will be sending out emails regarding logistics and other details very soon, but only to those who have RSVP'd directly to me.

    Thanks, and I look forward to meeting you and working on some great Edible Forest Garden magic soon!

    Cheers,
    Sean

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
