“I found Tony McCammon to be an excellent teacher. Not only did he teach me a lot about gardening, he made learning fun. His love of all things horticultural was entertaining and infectious. Over the course of my long career in marketing and management, I attended many workshops and trainings. I learned something from each of them, but I never had one that I actually looked forward to attending the way I looked forward to Tony’s course. I highly recommend Tony McCammon for teaching opportunities, speaking opportunities, and any landscape design projects you may have.”
