"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." Amanda K.
"I've had the pleasure of learning from Carmen as a part of the online Permaculture Design program through Verge Permaculture as well as through Urban Farm School. The depth, breadth & beauty of her content is matched by her passion in sharing that knowledge. Anyone looking to expand their proficiency in growing food locally and attaining high-yields in a resilient way, would benefit from Carmen's mastery. I am so grateful to have learned so much from her in a short period of time. I'm looking forward to participating in future workshops and courses with Carmen." Amy R.

"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 take me yet, but I'm so grateful that I took a chance on this course. Thank you!" Daniel Z.
