Anniversary Series

Since 2010, I've taught hundreds of people to grow their own vegetables, herbs, and flowers from seed

In this workshop, you'll learn my easy, hands-on methods and secret tips for growing and feeding your family wholesome, organic produce from your backyard or your balcony. I brings the seeds and supplies. You take home tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, melons, pumpkins, sunflowers and so much more, all seeded and ready to sprout.

You'll also be armed with supplies to plant in the future, and I'll add you to my private Seed Starters Facebook group for ongoing support and information.

Even experienced seed starters love this workshop - some come every year!

Come get messy and have fun!
