My journey into gardening started with my kids.......

Many years ago, my oldest son was 10 years old. He wanted to start a garden. I was a tired, busy, homeschooling foster mama. I didn't have time, space, or knowledge to start a garden. 

But I said yes to the best experience of learning, loving, & growing as a family in the garden.

Thanks for being here. I hope that the resources will give you encouragement to know that you can do this gardening thing too.

Frequently Asked Questions

I don't have a green thumb. How do I keep a garden alive?

With the right set up: 1. raised garden beds in the right location 2. organic soil 3. watering system 4. plants in the right season 5. and a coach helping you along each season there is only room for success. I believe that everyone has a green thumb. You just haven’t had the chance to have the right elements to make success happen, but you can!

How will I know what to do in the garden?

There are many levels of support. I have 3 coaching sessions built in for those who get a full Kitchen Garden System Install. Each coaching session comes with a lesson on gardening for that season, a planting plan, and an option to buy plants that match the season. For those who already have a garden in place, a Refresh Consultation can be scheduled at any time to help encourage & restart your garden for the next season. A plant guide, coaching lesson, an analysis of present garden, and an option to buy plants will also be available.

I send out a monthly newsletter for the Sacramento/ El Dorado Regions with a checklist of what to do each month. And you can always shoot me an email or message on @createmygarden.

How much time will I have to put into a garden?

Our lives are very busy, that’s why a Kitchen Garden System is perfect for you! With little maintenance & no weeds, all you have to do is harvest, enjoy the beauty of a garden, and watch things grow when you have a chance. This type of a garden is very easy to keep up with in our busy lives. I would estimate about 10-15 min. every other day to harvest and to enjoy.

How will I know how to garden if I don't live close to you? 

I will be adding resources on this website to help you match your gardening needs and help you move through gardening with ease. The courses that are coming will be like having a best friend alongside you during your gardening experience so that you grow in confidence and have fun learning at the same time! I can’t wait to go on this adventure with you!
