Thank you for the most enlightening weekend I have had in a long time. My goodness, how you can change your outlook to life in such a short time. Before, soil was soil and now I see it as a living entity and am scared to walk over it!! – Lynette
It feels like my eyes have opened and my whole world has changed. – Arthur
I’d just like to say thanks for the awesome time I had this weekend. I realised that if I just make a few minor adjustments to what I am already doing, I am sure I will have much better results. I am feeling really inspired and motivated so thanks for that – Gail
I saw a truck driving away with green material, on its way to the tip, and I saw it with different eyes, not as a waste, but as a resource. – Clint
