Kitchen Gardening Coaching

There is nothing like the taste of a freshly picked home- grown strawberry unless itís a lettuce still wet with dew, a sun-warmed tomato, or a handful of fragrant herbs.

You want to grow some edible yourself but not sure how to start? You just moved here and are not sure of the growing conditions? You want to pick an experienced kitchen gardenersí brain so you can learn fast without taking years to learn from your mistakes? You want to see what composting is about or how to build a raise bed? You want some help selecting plants? identifying plants in your yard? or practical advice and demonstration on how to starts seeds? how to prune? Just want some ideas on how to add edibles in your landscape? What the heck is leaf celery and what do I do with it? Those are examples of when our kitchen gardening coaching services are just right for you.

This service is available on an hourly basis*: use just a few hours, or have us come regularly to help you grow that kitchen garden you always wanted. We can come and garden along with you for just a few hours once or regularly over the entire growing season, showing you what to do and how to do it, discussing techniques, planting together etc.† Weíll work together, while Iíll help you set priorities, organize the tasks, learn garden techniques, what to grow, how to grow and how to harvest. A gardening coach is here to encourage you, support you and empower you!

We also offer design services/consultation: we can design a kitchen garden for you. We can either implement it (working with other professionals as necessary) or we can turn the plans over to you, for you to implement at your own pace. Itís your choice!
