Reviews for Backyard Goat Keeping:
“I can’t believe how much Sundari taught us in 3 hours. She covered the information in great breadth and depth, while still giving us all the time to hang out with the goats. Nothing dry about the presentation, either – she peppered her facts with great anecdotes that kept us all really engaged. I thought it was terrific.” –Laura M.
“I really enjoyed the class. I own 4 full size goats but knew nothing about the dwarf varieties. Came home with more knowledge than I went in with. Definitely worth my while.” –Jacinda G.
