All About Containers: Veggies and Herbs for Containers
Reviewed by Anonymous on 5/11/2019
Great and knowledgeable instructor who was thorough with answering any and all questions. There was a lot of pertinent information pertaining to the course subject that will be very useful. There was so much information on the slides it would have been nice for him to offer emailing it to the students too. The building was under construction and was apparently not properly ventilated because about halfway through the course choking paint and chemical fumes filled the floor and room we were on. We tried opening windows and shutting doors to prevent the odors from filling the air, but then the sounds from the traffic and street below were loud and distracting. Certainly not the instructors fault, but NYBG could have been more conscious about how their construction was affecting their courses.

Lots of great information. I think the class would have been even better if it was just a little bit longer. Would have liked to ask more questions, and would have liked some hands-on something.

Great content, but lacking on the inspiration. Most of the direction was very much what I could Google / find online. Would love a more practical side to the course. And please, make slides available for us to print! It is so frustrating to be told they will be available a week later ...
