    This sounds like a wonderful workshop and I would love to attend if the date had not fallen on Father’s Day.
    Could you please consider offering it another Sunday? That would be greatly appreciated!!
    Thank you much,

      Hi, Cheryl!

      We can talk with our program partners, The Seed Farm, about offering it at another time. You may be interested, though, in our June 23 workshop at Bucks County Brewery. Hope to see you there!

    A couple of weeks ago, I registered and apparently am on the wait list–is it still filled?
    Maybe you could offer another opportunity for a similar program?
