The excitement of starting your own food garden can sometimes be dampened by the lessons you learn along the way so we have created a Food Garden e-course to give you the confidence to get started.
You can spend a lot of time and money setting up your patch one week and turn around and find it wiped out by bugs the next, or you can be left scratching your head trying to work out why your tomato leaves are turning yellow and the fruit isn’t ripening, or why your plants always look thirsty. You can look back at the cost of investment and think, this just isn’t worth it.
We don’t want this to happen to you.
A family food garden offers so much more than nutrient dense food for your family. Although, it’s pretty awesome picking your dinner instead of standing in the store trying to work out what to buy. I love getting the kids involved by sending them out with a harvest basket and a list, and seeing what they come back with.
Your whole family will benefit.
- You’ll find it teaches kids where real food comes from
- It will help them appreciate the natural world
- Your family will develop sustainable living practices that will stay with them for life
- Gardening provides a place for your family to grow together
Online Organic Gardening Course
Our Food Garden e-course covers the basics of starting, maintaining and understanding your food garden organically in the Australian climate. It has come from years of experience in maintaining my own garden, before and after our kids joined us. I have also spent hours and hours researching and sourcing so I could deliver a valuable learning experience for you to enjoy.
Covering a vast range of topics, with the objective to get you started in your patch so your small investment in the Food Garden e-course will save you time and money on trial and error over the seasons.
I have made all the mistakes for you so you can enjoy your productive garden with your family.

The Food Garden e-course is laid out in an online program which is easy to navigate. You can do the course at your own pace and revisit modules whenever you like. Inside the e-course, you will find valuable content, quizzes and videos. The video content consists of expert chat sessions and demonstrations.
The entire course content is available in a downloadable handbook, including images of pests and flowers so you can easily refer to it on the go. Also included in this e-course is a downloadable journal. Sometimes it’s hard to keep track of every little thing that happens. This way you can record your progress and your key learning so you can refer back to them the following season.
When you consider the cost of seedlings, seeds, soil, mulch, garden beds, plus valuable time and energy that goes into a food garden, it can really add up. Having a broad understanding of your environment will provide you with confidence and base plan so your family food garden experience will be well worth the effort.
I really do hope to see you in the training and watch your food garden journey come to life.
