Now, I expect differences in ideas, techniques, and background, but I choose to celebrate the differences and find that more often than not, I can still learn from folks who disagree with me even on the deepest levels.
When I looked at going to the second class, I just couldn't face the idea of suffering through a guy that had no respect for his peers. So, I didn't go.
And what is the point? A lot of people that read this blog are on the edge of forward moving gardening. We are all likely to be teachers in the field at some point
When we get there, we need to be able to step back and say, 'No, I don't agree with many of the things you are doing, but I'm glad you are gardening. Oh, and by the way, here is something that has worked for me. I hope it will work for you as well.'
Peace be with you and let me know how your gardens are doing!
