“I’d like to express my deep
appreciation to you, Beth, for making your garden workshop so memorable. You
have a special gift for creating a safe learning environment, with a well of
positive things to say without passing judgment. It was a joy to be there with
you and the others. Your garden is magical, and you created a magical day for
me.”  Ann C.
