"One seldom meets a plant lover with more enthusiasm and child like joy than William. Combined that with his deep sage infused wisdom, and you really have a master. William is a great teacher, practitioner, and ambassador for the plants.
And he’s such a visionary; its always fun to see what he’ll come up with next!"
