With just 15 minutes in your garden each day, you’ll be growing! 

Gardening can be intimidating, but it doesn’t need to be! We’ll lead you by the hand every step of the way. We take the guesswork out of gardening and teach you the skills you need to meet your gardening goals. 

As a result of Grow-It-Yourself you will be able to:

  • Eat the healthiest organic food
  • Save money (At least $700 of organic produce can be grown in a 10 x 10 square-foot garden!)
  • Nourish not just your body, nourish your soul.
  • Teach children where their food comes from.

What are you waiting for? Come grow with us!


We hold your hand throughout this process

And supply the resources

to make your garden dream finally a reality!

Nicky and Dave are kind and caring and compassionate people that have helped me through successes and failures in my garden, and I have far better results than I have ever had before!
The true principles that are taught apply to any gardener, and the community provides support and accountability all through the journey.
This is one of the best investments I have ever made in a program.

I want to learn and grow to teach my children. All along the process I have felt fabulously mentored and helped.
When I felt overwhelmed, you’ve helped me focus on my next step and set realistic goals
and the accountability has been extremely helpful...
I feel like I’ve got more than I expected and you over-delivered tremendously.

The program is easy to implement and being able to discuss what I was doing and getting feedback was very helpful and encouraging

The structure, accountability and knowing someone else had found out a system that worked so I could emulate it.
Free buffet approaches take WAY more time and effort to learn from without the structure GIY provides.
