Fun and Informative

Cecilia from Ellicott City, MD - 10/13/2020 14:36:49

Kathy provided a very fun and informative presentation for our Garden Club on Ground Covers. She is clearly knowledgable and yet she explains things so that even the novices among us followed. There is no doubt that we will want to invite her to return again in the future.

Ms Jentz gave a lively informative talk on Fall Colors in the garden. She is very knowledgeable and personable. I really liked her power point slides. She was able to do a great job on a hybrid platform despite the outdoor noises. I would highly recommend her for any garden club program.
