Very good 2 part course.
Very thorough and useful presentation on, so to speak, the parts of farming that have to be licensed. Particularly for New York State. The presenter has a point about the City of Syracuse's odd position on the wildness of domestic cattle.
Good primer on a topic more vast than I imagined!
I REALLY ENJOYED THE PRESENTER !
An excellent job, presentation. I tis obvious that this practitioner is serious and dedicated to her practice areas and to sharing her extensive knowledge and experience with other practitioners. Great!
Good overview of the topics.
I enjoyed the sections on organic labeling and animal zoning.
