Get a JumpStart on Next Season's Garden
(your best garden yet!)
Reflect & Uncover
Using this 5-day roadmap, reflect on your last garden and uncover details you may have missed -- "hidden" keys that will help your next season's garden be more productive and enjoyable.
Before you begin planning your garden this winter, you'll list what you need to learn, gather, and do and put them on your fall/winter calendar -- making the off-season more enjoyable and full of possibilities!
Save Time & Overwhelm
When you watch 1 short video per day, do the day's assignment, and participate in the LIVE trainings for further inspiration, you'll save time in planning your garden and skip the overwhelm.
Here's how it works:
Once you purchase your seat in the challenge, you'll be emailed instructions for the challenge, as well as your Garden JumpStart Workbook.
Each day during the 5-Day Challenge, you'll view a SHORT video (less than 5 minutes) with the day's challenge. Then complete the assignment in your guided Garden JumpStart Workbook.
By the end of the challenge, you will have a plan in place for what you will research, plan, and do during the fall and winter to prepare to plan your next season's garden!
I'm Jill and I am a US gardener in Arkansas, Zone 7b. I began my first garden in 2013 as a new stay-at-home mom wanting to save money on our food.
As I poured myself into learning, I found myself frustrated with the lack of gardening information for newbies like me. Still, I fell in love with gardening over the years, and I made it my mission to help other beginners find more understandable, accessible, science-based information.
My goal is to help beginners learn to grow a rewarding, productive garden!
Frequently Asked Questions
Hi there! If you're new around here, let me introduce myself.
In 2013 I began my first garden. I had no background, no knowledge, and no experience. Even the simplest gardening concepts stumped me.
But with determination, research, and trial and error, I now grow a large and productive garden that feeds my family year-round.
Because finding information specific to beginners wasn't easy for me to find, I decided to teach others at a level they could understand. Now, I host a top-rated garden podcast and published my first book in 2020: Vegetable Gardening for Beginners.
I certainly don't know it all, but I remain curious and teach others what I learn as I continue to learn and experiment.
But what I've always been good at is this: organizing, planning, and seeing things that not everyone notices. That's why the Garden JumpStart Challenge is so important to me. I truly believe it will help YOU get a jumpstart on your best garden yet. Will you join me?
