What would you grow if you weren’t afraid of failing?

Would you grow your own fruits and vegetables to feed your family? Maybe you’d plant a whole garden full of herbs and flowers. Either way, whether you’ve recently started gardening, or have always gardened with store-bought seedlings and always wondered what it takes to grow them from seed, this course is for you!

As the creator of the gardening blog Bee and Basil and the Grow Your Own Food podcast, I do everything I can to strip away the mysticism that can often surround gardening. Because gardening success is not about having a green thumb—it’s about understanding what plants need at every stage of their life.

In this course, I outline the supplies you need and the steps you need to take to grow your own seedlings from home—something that can save you money over the long term, and if you choose to grow fruits and vegetables, help you provide for you and your family each growing season. It’s a process I’ve perfected over several years—and it’s become so successful, that in 2019, my husband and I managed to cook with only fruits and vegetables grown in our own garden. Yes…for a whole year!

Included in the course are several worksheets and tip sheets that you can download, print and have alongside you as you work on starting your own garden from seed this growing season.

So if you’re ready, I’d love for you to join me and get growing!
