Hi, I loved the Zoom meeting on composting I thought Richard was so informative and easy to listen to and understand. Its also great to be able to see and hear the information in the comfort of your own home with out having to be in a crowd and find a good position so you can hear and see. People were able to ask questions without holding up the whole session.

Fantastic information and a really enjoyable and kind delivery style. I picked up good tips to improve my "green/Brown " balance.

A fabulous webinar. Richard was clear and concise, answered questions during the presentation and had good knowledge of composting. Would recommend this course for beginners in composting.
