Dee has given me lots of knowledge and skills to get out and get my garden sorted. Maybe I can be nearly as good as my Dad was. He grew everything have lots of memories of harvesting fruit and veg as a child. Now it’s time for me to create similar memories for my own kids. Thanks for the know how and somewhat shaky confidence. Really looking forward to lots more gardening and harvesting. Thanks again – Verena Butler, Hugginstown – Outdoor Vegetable Crop Production, June 2015

All I can say is that I fell on this course totally by accident and I am so happy as I thoroughly enjoyed it, loved all that we did and I have come away with a better knowledge of how to select, plant and hopefully produce good vegetable crops – Carmel Fennelly, Ballyhale, Outdoor Vegetable Crop Production

Dee’s enthusiasm is so infectious. The course really made me want to grow herbs and vegetables! Mary Kinsella – Herbs & Salad Workshop
