The course has given me a larger vision: the ability to stand back and
assess those practical aspects of drainage, soil structure, irrigation
needs, compaction concerns, site features and utilization, plant health
and landscape protection. These practical aspects must continuously be
related to the ever-present consideration of nature's need to strive
towards a more balanced approach.Working with nature has more meaning
for me, and, I hope, for those students with whom I interact.
