These workshops are a fantastic opportunity to learn from experienced local practitioners, and to have a lot of fun spending the day with others with similar interests from diverse backgrounds as described by the feedback received from our first two workshops.

"A very good intro to TH, covering all the basics. Toni was very energetic, clear and direct. It really helped to have some information about assessment forms ...This makes it much easier to evaluate the program and share outcomes. It was a very nice surprise to have a cafe coffee any yummy pastries for morning tea. Much appreciated :-)"

"Congratulations and thank you... I enjoyed the workshop from beginning to end! A wonderful introduction to the principles of using plants and garden activities as a way to help with healing and well being."
