David’s knowledge of mosses, his amazing design capabilities, and his entertaining lecture style, have pleased and educated thousands of new converts to moss gardening.

I so enjoyed your presentation at the [JC Raulston] arboretum on Thursday. Thank you for all of that great information. I was shocked to pull up and see so many cars already lining the street. What a wonderful thing to have your passion draw such a record crowd! As a first time home owner, things like the large swath of bare mud in a shady corner of my lawn can be a bit daunting when combined with the many, many other challenges of an old house and city gardening. So, it is always such a gift when one of those "issues" becomes catalyst for a foray into new territory. From messy mud to marvelous moss is my new motto! Now I am really jazzed about that shady corner.

BTW- After spending 12 years in a well funded corporate marketing world where the standards for PowerPoint decks were seriously high, I am rarely impressed by slide decks. Your slides were excellent! Kudos on the whole things.    -Kara Curtis
