What a truly wonderful day! Richard is an inspirational trainer. The Garden Classroom team were so welcoming and hospitable, lunch was delicious.

All schools should send their teachers and TAs on this training as not only can it be applied in the outdoors but also in the classroom. It poured with rain all day but I went away feeling excited, enthusiastic and eager to apply the knowledge learned.
