Friday morning’s class was very enjoyable. The visit to your local orchard really set the scene! Michelle and her husband gave us a great insight into life in the orchard! It was lovely to meet them and learn about the upcoming apple harvest.

As always your class was an inspiration; I always enjoy your demos.

Well done and thank you!
