    Do you have any Hydroponic Masterclasses in December 2021? If not, does your masterclass cover the same material as the online course?

      Hi Johan,

      Unfortunately we only have the hydroponics course this month. However the content is the same as the online course.

    Unfortunately I only saw this ad this morning so it is too late for us to book. When will you have your next course?

    We are really keen to send some of our staff on this masterclass.
