"Lori's instruction is vital to our business. We use her courses as the standard training modules for our team. Her methodology and teaching style are so approachable. I love how she always pauses to spell out acronyms and reminds the class of definitions. Plus, she is a warm and generous person, and her passion is really inspiring.

Lara Hermanson

Co-Owner, Landscape Contractor at Farmscape, Oakland

"Lori is passionate about her work and sharing her knowledge with those who want to learn. She responds quickly to questions, and her materials are easy to understand. I am so glad I found her course; my understanding of irrigation increased tenfold. I highly recommend this class and her additional resources."

"Actually, I feel a little bit sad that it's over because I looked forward to and really enjoyed each lesson (and learned a lot, too.) I greatly appreciate all the work you have put into this. It is top-notch quality. You have been very available and responsive to our questions. And mostly I thank you for your warmth and generous spirit.
