“NJTF staff are experienced dynamos – thank you seems totally inadequate to express our gratitude, on behalf of Verona Park Conservancy, for today’s training.  When you can hold the rapt attention of an audience from novice to expert for an entire Saturday morning, AND even the pros go home with new tools in their kit – that’s a winning program.  I can’t wait for the next phase of this training!”

– Deborah MacEvoy Jacobsen, Pres., Hort. Chair Verona Park Conservancy
