My husband and I really enjoyed the Moss Workshop. Thank you for organizing a truly relaxing, yet educational experience. My reason for attending was to figure out how to grow moss in this one large area of my densely shaded yard. I have moss covering every other surface (including the house’s siding). My questions were answered, plus I got lots of great ideas. I also have hope that the 25 sq ft of sheet moss that I purchased from Moss Acres will probably be OK next year (right now it looks not so good). Rick was wonderful and so passionate about moss. What’s most amusing is that when we returned home, my husband finally noticed that the many boulders in the backyard, around the pond and waterfall, and between the patio pavers are carpeted in moss!! It's been this moss-covered for several years. Mother Nature did a great job. For that ah-ha moment, I deem your workshop a success!
