Mr. Schaffer,

I have had the good fortune to work with Tim Extine and his students for the last five years and the projects produced by the students have made a tremendous contribution to our two learning gardens as well as in the schoolyard habitat gardens at the elementary and high schools in York County and Poquoson.

The relationship we have developed with the Woodworking and Construction class at the New Horizons Career and Technical Education Center in Newport News is more than just a client looking to have a project built. The relationship is a true partnership. Many beyond the Master Gardeners have benefited from Tim and his students as news of the various projects got out many individuals came to New Horizons and requested similar projects.
