Why this course?

Most online gardening resources I've found come from veteran gardeners. Though their knowledge is incredibly beneficial, they have forgotten what it means to be a beginner and it's hard for them to convey the most basic of information to those just starting. I haven't forgotten what it's like to be a beginner, so I can better help those needing to start from scratch.

It took me several years of trial, error, failure, and success to learn what I'm teaching you in one season. That's not even counting the hours and hours of research I've poured myself into -- time you won't have to spend.

Even with a small garden planned strategically, this course could easily pay for itself in one season. If you use one bell pepper in your kitchen per week, this crop alone will pay for your course and then some!

I'm Jill, and I started my first garden in 2013. I started from literally the ground up -- no established garden and no knowledge. I spent countless hours researching and learning, though even that didn't save me from some beginning gardening mistakes. But even through those failures, the gardening bug bit me, and I was hooked. Each season has brought me immeasurable joy and a desire to continue. Now, with five years behind me, I want to help the beginner -- like I was -- grow your own productive garden -- big or small! I want to save you the time it took me in research and failures so you can harvest from your dream garden this season!
