No. This course is designed for the HOME grower. There a lot of details that go into small business and they are not covered in this course. However if you check cottage or market laws in your area, extra veggies can often be sold a farmer’s markets.
No way! This is the perfect introductory course for learning about planting anything.
When you start your seeds will vary depending on the first and last frost dates in your gardening zone. I will teach you how to figure out this information. Typically seeds sown indoors are started 6-8 weeks prior to the last frost date in the spring. Frost hardy seeds and plants can be sown or transplanted before or at frost date and frost tender seedlings are transplanted AFTER the last frost date.
In this course I will show you different options in a range of pricing. From DIY seed pots, germinating in a sunny window and homemade seed starting mix to purchasing seed trays, professional grade soils and grow lights.

My hope for this course. . .
I’ve always wanted to be some sort of “farmer”. I come from a long line of hard working, resourceful Montana farmers & ranchers. I also come from a long line of Montana teachers! As a former RN, I learned to care deeply for others, their health needs as well as my own. Like my family before me, I also value a good hard days work, love to learn new skills and teach others.
Never in a million years did I think all these values would tumble and combine, finding me a stay at home mom, blogger or Microgreen Farmer but here I am! I completely enjoy and embrace where God as brought me. And now I feel led to share just a bit of what I have learned with others.
What joy I find in putting my hands in the soil, planting a tiny seed and watching it unfurl. Are you ready to experience this joy too? I am ready to teach you.
