Tasteful Yard Design course is back! 50% off, limited time

I hope all of you are well.

The Tasteful Yard Design course is for homeowners who want to change their landscaping to one which suits their family's needs - and do it themselves. It's a 12 module course which takes you from where you are to a completed, installed home edible landscaping.

The course has been around since 2013 and keeps getting better!

I'm writing to let you know two things:

1) I'm moving the Tasteful Yard Design course ​to a new software system hosted by Teachable, which will make the course much easier to use. 2) To celebrate, I'm re-opening the course with a 50% pre-order discount!

The half price sale​ ends 9pm US Central time June 11th.

I have self-study and group options available, so you should be able to find the course structure and level of support that's right for you.

Hope to see you there!

Patty
