Can I just say I have enjoyed all the lectures, conferences, classes and tours put on by ELA. You are doing a fabulous job. Thank you so much for all the work you put into this really incredible resource.

Georgia H

Thank you for the great ELA newsletters - very informative!

Stephanie H

I learned so much from David Seiter’s webinar.  I love the scientific approach and thinking differently about some plant species in terms of services, design, interaction with people, etc. Thank you!

Missy F

Thank you everyone for the energy you put into ELA. These programs shine from your involvement, expertise, and love of nature. I’m excited for what the next year will bring.

Mark H.

I especially enjoyed the Conference and felt like I learned quite a bit. I plan to make attending an annual event, either for me or one of my work colleagues.

Michele A.

The ELA Conference always cures my “winter blues” by re-energizing for the new season, but it also inspired my creative thinking, opening myself up to inspirational thought can lead to new ideas.

Lori S.

The conference was wonderful; it always is for me. I especially love that it is not ever dumbed down and I love being immersed in my most favorite subjects. It’s always astounding to me how well vetted the keynote speakers are. They are always so inspiring. It’s great to see familiar faces, old friends, and to make new friends in the fields that I love.

Andi R.

Thanks - another great webcast. For those of us living too far away to take advantage of other ELA offerings, your webinars are eagerly awaited. I teach classes at the NC Arboretum, and always tell my students about them.

"I just returned from visiting the Celebrating Natives gardens in Concord and Lincoln. They were so interesting and the homeowners answered any questions we had. Please do this again. It is a wonderful way to spread the word on ecological gardening. Thanks."

I loved the Roy Diblik design workshop. Educational, hands on and inspirational. Great job!

I thoroughly enjoy being a member of ELA. In fact, I get the most out of my membership from your organization than from any other professional organization I belong to. Your educational opportunities are fantastic, I have enjoyed every webinar I've ever attended, and your newsletter is always informative and helps me do my work. Thank you!

Laura and I were just talking about how much we get from all of the ELA events and webinars…. The good "vibes" abound at ELA events.

I am an avid consumer of your web information and webinars. Keep up the excellent work!
