About Alicia @ Create My Garden

I love teaching and helping kids, families, and plants to grow. I am a teacher with a master's in education and have been homeschooling for the past 16 years and teaching classes. After years of gardening with my kids, I have a dream of making a veggie garden a reality for every family.

I teach gardening life-skill classes that bring learning to life for the neurodivergent student. I believe that students learn best by hands-on activities.

What better way to learn how to read and apply science than by interacting with the world and putting what is being learned into practice. Watching a garden grow and learning the life skills to make that garden come alive are useful life skills that will last a student for a lifetime.

What Parents are Saying

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. So 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 so much easier for someone like me. I plan to use this in the fall in our homeschool once we start up again.

Kristin Escalera● Homeschool Mom & Business Owner

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! 

Cathy Yassa ● Busy mom of 7

"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!!"
