Participant Comments

Great hands-on activities; great balance of listening and doing; delicious foods; amazing garden space; a wealth of written resources!

I got inspiration and reinforcement of our garden and nature activities, and new ideas to expand the garden environment. The program was more than I expected.

I valued the integrity of the program and its long history.

A wonderful day, and I will use what I learned in my class for years to come.

I valued the great ideas from presenters and the interaction with experienced early childhood education teachers.

I spent a lovely day in a lovely garden and met lovely people. I loved it all. Thanks!
