Mel says,"So the question isn’t really, “Why do you want to be part of something so positive and world-changing and purely wonderful as SFG?” The question really is, “Why wouldn’t you?” And, of course, there’s just no good answer to that particular question. I hope you’ll join me in making this a better world through SFG. Because that’s our mission and that’s the best possible reason for becoming an SFG Certified Instructor.

I ordered this course because I have started SFG this year and was asked as a Master Gardener to do presentations on my experience (I'm totally hooked!). I found it generally helpful and will be using the materials for the first time in August in front of a community garden group. I hope to have my certification by then!

The pictures are excellent... very simple, and will make great handouts.
It was a real encourager to see other instructors, teaching SFG in a very relaxed way.
