What makes this course different?

Unlike other gardening courses, my Garden School offers live learning. I don’t simply give you a login and leave you on your own—we work together to improve your gardening skills, answer all your gardening questions, and help you be the gardener you’ve always dreamed of being. 

Plus, you’ll meet like-minded people who are as excited about plants and gardens as you are – and who won’t think you are crazy for getting dirt under your fingernails or twigs in your hair.
