Kathy’s talk was excellent. She not only identified options to deal with different types of weeds, but also mentioned many common suggestions that do not work.

The weed lecture was very informative. I didn't know about all the various weeds and the ways to deal with them. I learned a lot and would highly recommend Kathy Jentz as a speaker.
