Gardening Classes for Kids:

Learn How to Grow a Successful Garden Together

Whether you know how to grow a garden or not, give your kids the life skill of growing their own food.

Go from zero to veggies in 12 weeks. 

Don't waste another season that you can spend time learning how to plant together.

  • Do you want to start a garden, but don't know where to begin?

  • Do you dream of having your kids pick food out of the garden to eat?

  • Do you want to see your kids learn responsibility & see the garden as a great space to start? 

  • Do you not want to waste your time failing at growing a garden? 

You are in the right place.    

I used to be that mom who killed every house plant within a few weeks.

When my 10-year-old son asked many years ago to start a garden, I had to decide that teaching him the life skills of gardening was so valuable that I would push past the failure to try to make it happen. As parents, it's important to support our children's interests and provide them with the resources they need to succeed.

That first season of gardening was full of failures. I wish that I had help to know what to do next. Parents can play a crucial role in guiding their children through these challenges and celebrating their successes.

And that’s where the Simple Gardening Method™ with kids comes into your life. It’s more than just a basic gardening course. It’s a gardening course for beginners as families.

Here’s what people are saying about the course

From a few beginner gardener moms: 

Jennifer B.

Beginner Gardener

No Garden Skills

"We are a family of 7 and started Alicia's garden online garden class with no garden skills. We have loved learning alongside our kids on what healthy soil looks like, what plants need, and how we can successfully grow some of our own food. It's been so calming and enjoyable for us all."

Jen. D.

Homeschool Mom

"Thanks for letting us do this!"

"We are true beginning gardeners, so much so that we had no idea of what to plant, how the soil needs compost, and when to grow. This class has taught us so much! 

We went from killing everything to growing plants and keeping them alive. My kids have loved the planting. My 13-year-old son told me one day after planting, 'Mom, thanks for letting us do this. That was fun.'

Not only does Alicia organize the online class well, but she cares and is very involved in the success of your garden. We love this class and have learned sooo much!!"

Here's What's in the Course:

Each week builds your knowledge & understanding as your garden grows.


Phase 1: Setting Up Your Garden

During this phase, the Simple Gardening Method will be the focus to find the best location for your garden, what kind of soil to use, how to water consistently, and how to know what to plant for each season according to where you live. 


Phase 2: Planting & Seasons

The second phase focuses on learning how to plant with seeds to start indoor gardening, how to get transplants ready to grow in the garden, & what helps with bringing more success in the garden. 


Phase 3: Growing & Learning

As the course continues, learning to take care of the garden with lessons on good and bad insects and how to protect your garden, how to extend the seasons to grow most of the year, and learning about Victory Gardens from the past and how they relate to our present vegetable garden.


Phase 4: Harvest & Enjoy!

Throughout the entire course, the garden journal provided will give your kids a space to enjoy the garden & breath in the peace of a garden design while vegetable gardening. During the last phase of learning of the garden, learning how to harvest and enjoy making recipes together as you and your family grow into becoming an experienced gardener.

Get to know your teacher,
Alicia DeVore

As a certified teacher, with a master's in education in reading, Alicia taught many years in the public school system before coming home & homeschooling her own children for the past 17 years. 

She started gardening over 10 years ago because of her son's desire to learn. That garden brought so much joy, fun, and food that Alicia continued to learn gardening skills and practices to create her garden dreams. 

Wanting to help others learn to garden and to keep it simple, Alicia got certified as a Gardenary Coach & Designer and started to create gardens for others. But that desire to make this information accessible to everyone, especially the mom who wants to learn with her kids has been a driving force in creating & teaching this course.

Everything is laid out in an easy step by step manner. 

Kristin Escalera- homeschool mom

I have always wanted to start a garden with my children, but get so overwhelmed at the thought of starting it since I consider myself to have a black thumb.

I am super excited about using this gardening course with my children. The videos and course content are beautifully made and I can tell everything is laid out in an easy step by step manner which will make it soo much easier for someone like me. I plan to use this in the fall in our homeschool once we start up again.

Alicia is an amazing instructor who communicates so well with children keeping them engaged and motivated.

She is a walking encyclopedia of gardening knowledge and her availability to consult and dream and troubleshoot problems is truly incredible. I can’t say enough good things about this course and I’m so happy my kids took it and are now ready to blossom into productive gardeners!

Frequently Asked Questions

How much time will this take each week?

Each week you will watch short videos (usually 10 to 15 mins) with your kids to learn the basics of building a successful garden. The lessons have downloads and recommended read-alouds that are helpful in making the gardening experience hands-on and comprehensible. You have the choice on how much you want to have your kids do in the course. 

The more you follow through with the simple gardening method, the more your garden will take shape and grow.

That depends on you and your family's garden plans. The lessons have many options in where to grow a garden. After the lessons, your family can use the information to make decisions on your garden and what you will need.
