Month-long, online Circle Clinics are a new offering for 2022.

I would love to hear from YOU as to what special topics you're interested in learning about. The month of October will be a mixture of various themes and content based on YOUR recommendations. Is it seed saving? Is it pruning? Is it a focus on herb care? Want to learn more about greenhouse growing or how to overwinter citrus? Let me know what topics you're interested in and we can create something special together.

2022 PLANNING CALENDAR!
This digital resource is designed to walk you through a year of growing, from SEED. If you've been around these parts for any length of time you know that I LOVE seeds. I even love the smell of seeds! I'm writing this sitting next to a large packet of napoli carrots enjoying the whiffs of potential! Sorry not sorry, plant nerd here.
Packed in the 2022 Planning Calendar will be resources, guiding principles and best practices for sowing from seed. Each month, there is an invitation to grow a new crop from seed in your growing space. The Calendar is written for growers with all size spaces, from containers to raised beds to in-ground!
The 2022 Planning Calendar is $29 and will be sent to you via email!
