Recruiting the Right Students

Today we had a recruiting seminar. We showed prospective students many pictorial examples of wonderful gardens all around the world, including several right here in Armenia, and taught them what makes Mittleider gardens unique and better than others.

We also invited Ceda, a participant in the Mittleider Method of gardening for the past two years, to speak. Ceda wowed them!

As she described her garden – small but so prolific she had trouble using and giving away all the produce – others became convinced quickly. Ceda lives in a small village called Moosh2 that was created for refugees from the ongoing Azerbaijan conflict, and she has shown many of her neighbors how to grow a great garden.

We expect her to bring a couple of other folks from her village to the training program. I believe we can expect at least 6 and perhaps 12 good students from the day’s efforts. It looks like we’re on our way.
