As I like to say: "No awkward gardens please".

 If your garden doesn't look beautiful, inspiring you to spend time there; you will simply lose interest in being there. #truth

Set up a DIY garden like professional would.

(Get the right setup and the professional look of the $5k, $10k, $15k+ gardens my team and I install for my clients for a tiny fraction of that price!)

This is what Kitchen Garden Academy students say about the program

"Everything I needed to finally make a baeutiful extension of my backyard." 

I have been gardening the traditional way for many years and had success. However, it was very labor intensive, took a lot of space, lots of weeding and when it rained, it was a muddy mess!

I was looking for a better, more efficient, organic way to garden when I stumbled across your Instagram page.

This spring, I found out you had a Kitchen Garden Academy course and I knew I had to take it. It was everything I needed to finally make a beautiful extension of my back yard. I love this philosophy.

So, I joined and the work began.

My husband and I spend many evening admiring this beautiful space and never regret our investment!

This is now a space that's admired by all our friends and family and we will enjoy for many years to come. You helped us make this dream come true.


Surprise! We have bonuses prepared for you!

This is what Kitchen Garden Academy students say about the program

"I was initally hesitant about the cost but KGA has been worth every penny." 

I have wanted to create a kitchen garden for years. I’ve bought books but they’ve all been too dense and I’ve mined Pinterest but the information there was overwhelming as well and entirely inconsistent.

As a designer, I would get lost in inspiration and drawing up my dreams only to feel completely clueless on how to execute them appropriately.

After reading your feature in Southern Living I immediately went online to learn more about your offerings; it was clear that your content was far more approachable than any other resource that I’ve come across.

So I pre-ordered your book and signed up for Kitchen Garden Academy! I was initially hesitant about the cost but KGA has been worth every penny. The content is well organized, concise and ultra informative without being overwhelming.

It gave me the confidence to finally create the kitchen garden I had been dreaming of for all these years. Setting up my garden has truly been a joy!

So much so that I’m even considering including garden design as part of my business offerings.
