Review for Square Foot Gardening Foundation, Ogden, UT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Through the SFG Foundation I have become a certified SFG instructor. Mel encourages ALL of us to add a a humanitarian component if we decide to start a SFG-related business. He was wise to do this because when we help others, we ourselves become fulfilled. Because of Mel's guidance there is now a demonstration bed at The Samaritan Women in Baltimore. Soon there will be a SFG at Park Elementary School (Brooklyn Park, MD) and in just a few days we are installing the first SFG bed at homeless residences in the Glen Burnie area. I never would have had the skills or confidence to tackle these projects without the help and encouragement of the SFG Foundation.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Becoming a SFG instructor and getting the skills needed to help other individuals and non-profits and schools.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand the staff.
