I believe everyone can learn to grow at least part of their own food.I have lived and gardened in SW Florida most of my life, where, with all the bugs, humidity and plant diseases, gardening should be an Olympic sport.Many would love to have a garden too but they don’t know where to start. My goal is to teach you better ways to grow your own food organically, and to give you the confidence to take the plunge.

**No guarantees disclaimer** There are obviously no guarantees in gardening… I personally have used these methods that I share in How To Start A Vegetable Garden For Beginners. However, how well your garden will grow depends on many factors including the time and effort you put into it, and a thousand other variables. I, therefore, cannot – and do not – promise you any specific level of success resulting from following the steps in this course.
