The first link states that it is a draft and it has comprehensive information about the program.  The second does not state that it is a draft and it contains no further information other than a title image.

I made some tweaks to the first couple paragraphs of "The Story."

Any edits or suggestions?  This needs to be the grippiest bit of text - clear, concise and compelling.


Most master gardener courses offer extensive botanical and cultivation information.  Which is great!   But they also teach that you must use all the bottles and sprayers of gick with the warning labels, which is not so great - for the gardener or  the garden.  

There has never been a course taught through an ecological lens . . . Until now.

                   In the Garden Master Course, we have taken the very best of the Advanced Master Gardener curriculum and improved upon it.  At the same time, we have employed biological and ecosystemic methods to eliminate the need for conventional and certified organic pesticides and herbicides.  Commercial gardening for the future!

Beau, I'd lose the last sentence.  It might dissuade those who have no interest in commercial gardening but might be interested in learning the techniques in this course for personal or homestead use.  Or you could just say "Gardening for the future!"  However if the course happens to be mostly geared toward commercial farming then leave it as is.

And this one is just my personal preference, but I'd write the prior sentence "At the same time, we have employed biological and ecosystemic methods to eliminate the need for conventional (or even certified organic) pesticides and herbicides."  Might prevent a few double-takes like I did when I read the original.  

Meld your first two sentences into one:  "Most Master Gardener courses offer extensive botanical and cultivation information, which is great!"

You could say "...all the bottles and sprayers of gick covered with warning labels..."

In the preview video, I was stumped by the moments when the characters' arms grew to improbable length. What could have inspired this? Then I remembered the eco-guardian robots in Miyazaki's Castle In The Sky.

latest video notes:

1:05 can we show cold climate food forests?

1:08 hmmmm  maybe split the screen to show one side with apple and rhubarb, and the other side with fig and avacado.  I don't think helen did tropical.

1:49 need some sound balancing

The character is rigged and has proportional limbs :) the thing is you’re younger self is sitting on a tiny chair hence your legs go up, your arms hang and you look like even more like a giant! I can tweak it but the joke would be lost.

Thanks for pointing it out Stewart!

I noticed several new things - really nice touches!  It is definitely well into getting polished.

Excellent!

I think the video is ready!  Can anybody spot anything in the video that needs a change?

Excellent suggestions!  I implemented all of them and changed "gick" to "nasty stuff," to be more understandable to the newcomer.
