“Todd is extremely knowledgeable about genetic, soil, and plant biology. He helped me tie my growing practices together for better plant health and helped to fill-in gaps of knowledge. I now understand how the various effectors of plant growth interact with each other and how all the plant and environmental factors shape the growing environment. Thanks, Todd!”

Hi Guys is this an “in person” Course or a Web based program???


It’s in-person and will offer it on-line sometime in the future.
