Planting the Seeds for Organic Gardening Success

Through the knowledge shared in this 8-week organic gardening e-course, you’ll also…

Empower Yourself. Become self-reliant as you learn how to grow your own healthy food. This is a skill you can use for years to come and share with others, especially kids.

Cultivate Connections. Invite family members to join you in your gardening pursuits. Pass along this amazing knowledge to your children. Kids who grow their own dinner really do learn to love eating vegetables!

Increase Earth Awareness. Become more aware of weather patterns, and the magical cycle of growing living green things that you can eat.

Find Time for Outdoor Pursuits! Spend some more time in nature, even if it’s just a sunny deck in the suburbs. Sunshine and fresh air do a body good; not to mention the exercise and relaxation you get from growing your own food.

Why Am I Teaching This Course?

In addition to my 20+ year background as a green living expert, four years ago I graduated from backyard organic gardener who grew on plots of land, sunny decks, and windowsills, to commercial grower on my boyfriend’s certified organic farm in the Mad River Valley of Vermont. Two seasons ago I started a successful cut flower business- Amy’s Organic Flowers. I sold creative, Vermont country style bouquets at the farmer’s market, farm stand, through a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), and for weddings and special events.

Sign Up in Time for the Spring Growing Season!

This is exactly what I have been looking for to share with my clients! The best thing people can do for their health is to eat fresh organic foods. Growing your own veggies has so much to offer – great exercise, Vit D from the sun, relaxing, getting in touch with nature, delicious food, saves money, no packaging… its a win/win/win! Amy thank you so much for doing this! xo, Maureen

Thanks so much, Maureen. Your support and endorsement means so much. And, if for some reason, a customer isn’t satisfied with the course within 30 days after the last lesson (#8) I will refund their money. So, it’s really a win-win situation.

When you consider the fact that most produce, including certified organic (unless it’s sourced locally), is approximately one week old by the time it hits the store produce shelf, who wants to lose all of those nutrients? There’s nothing like going outside your door (or on your sunny patio/deck, or even your indoor windowsill) and plucking ripe, nutrient rich, tasty produce for your meal that day. It’s fun to grow it yourself, not to mention the money savings too. But, I don’t need to sell you on it since you just signed up. Congratulations!
