Frequently Asked Questions
Do you offer credits or refunds if I bought a ticket and can't make it?
I am able to offer class credit to those who contact me more than 72 hours in advance to let me know they are unable to come. Credits can be put toward other classes that are not already sold out. Unfortunately, I am unable to offer refunds.
Why do you limit class sizes?
I'm actually a trained teacher, and quality is really important to me. I don't want to be a lecturer in front of a crowd; I want to be an interactive, fun and effective teacher. For those reasons, I limit the classes to the number of people I think I can effectively teach at one time.
Can I bring my kids on plant walks?
I allow children who can't walk yet, and children over the age of 12 (who might learn something!). Otherwise, my experience has shown that children are too much of a distraction to other students in the class.
Can I bring my kids to indoor classes?
To indoor classes, I allow children over 13 who are there to participate. This is a matter of my personal teaching style. I know this is a burden to busy parents, and I have discovered through experience that this boundary is necessary for me to offer consistently quality classes. For weekend intensives, I ask that participants be 18 or older.
Are your workshops wheelchair accessible?
Unfortunately my currently venue is not, though it's worth an ask just in case a particular venue may be. I have venue in the works that is wheelchair accessible which I will be teaching at part time.
Can I bring my dog?
Please no dogs. They love to trample on things that everyone's looking at. Service dogs are fine, of course.
What opportunities do you have for low income folks?
Please contact me if you'd like to join one of my workshops, and the fee is too much. I often offer worktrade opportunities in exchange for help setting up, and help taking pictures during classes. I also sometimes hold free workshops.
