Superb easy to go along teaching! Never did that before & she’s a great teacher. Location is not so easy to go to due to crazy traffic, but it was worth it

Attended: Native Plants 101: Summer Identification and Gardening


The handouts were tough to read and while the two teachers did a good job and knew the material, it would’ve been better to not look at the Yesler Swamp for IDing. I thought I was going to get a better idea of what plants should go in a yard/garden.
