“I thoroughly enjoyed the presentation.  Mike, you are so engaging and knowledgeable.  You kept the class to a manageable size, which made it easy for me to follow as I am hearing impaired.  Your assessment of people’s questions seemed to be spot on as well.  As a new plumeria gardener, I need all the help I can get to succeed. ” Clare

“Took his class and it was fantastic! Learned new things and learned I was actually doing some things right!! Took questions all through the class so all of mine were answered. Even got to walk around and admire his endless trees! Would highly recommend it!” Lisa
