"I've spent many, many hours reading, watching videos, and listening to podcasts on gardening and permaculture; one class with Urban Farm School was far more informative and comprehensive. Carmen brings a wealth of education and experience as well as a passion for teaching ... One class could change the way you think about the world around you."

"I learned a ton of valuable information during Urban Farm School's class on Soil Health! Carmen has so much rich knowledge to share, and I definitely plan on taking more classes. I highly recommend Urban Farm School!"

"I took an Introduction to Beekeeping course with Urban Farm School just for fun...I loved it so much I set up two hives the following week and have had a great time learning (and eating honey!)"

" Find me a better teacher- I dare you!  The incredible content and information I was exposed to during the 2-week Permaculture Design Certification course was overwhelmingly insightful and life-changing, and I'm deeply impressed and appreciative of Carmen's knowledge, wisdom and care. I don't fully know where this will all take me yet, but I'm so grateful that I took a chance on this course. Thank you!"
