“I have been growing vegetables for 40+ years, and have recently attained Master Gardener status with Oklahoma State University, but I have never used cover crops over the winter. This is the year I will start! Love your videos...your presentations explain the "why" behind the "do this."
“I have been gardening vegetables for 10 years and I've attended several workshops on composting taught by master gardeners and professional farm managers. This was the 1st time I heard the difference between the types of bin composting and the advantages of each type. I also never learned how to correct composting problems and the reason for not using meat, dairy and fatty oils in composting. In the video I learned the details of making compost tea and learned different ways use it. Also I had never heard of Biochar before. This was time well spent.”
“The love you are passing on to give us enough information which allows every gardener to make a choice of how they want to take on their gardening adventure, from beginner to more experienced gardeners. There is a gem for each to culture the love of a garden to improve the Earth.”

“Your class was transformational! I am growing so much more vegetables and have a plan of action.” - Laura
“How big of a difference just one of your ideas has made! I implemented your harvest log idea and it is helping us figure out when the different fruits and vegetables are all ripe throughout the year. We use this information to even out our production as we rotate crops throughout the year.” - David (U.S.)
"Your course format has been outstanding. The visual aids really helped me understand and use the information." - Judy
“I really got a lot out of the garden calendar & tasks. This has really helped me feel it is OK to walk away from the garden after 30 minutes work for the day. I don't feel so overwhelmed. And I’m amazed at how quickly my compost now decomposes according to this calendar.” - Sue
“Hi Stacey, I have an awesome garden thanks to you. I harvested 6 pounds of peas last week and 5 pounds of string beans last night. I feel GREAT thanks to you. So please know your work is having great benefit to us beginners. Peace and carrots.” - Carol (U.S.)
“Although I've been gardening all my life, I'm learning tips and tricks I hadn't considered before... Thanks!” - Rianna
"Stacey speaks to issues and details most videos gloss over or omit. Furthermore, she has the ability to make complex topics easily understood and quickly implemented—a true gift. Her course is invaluable. I find myself reviewing those class videos as the gardening season progresses. Thank you Stacey for making gardening and fresh organic food available to young and old—on both large and small plots of ground. Anyone can do this!" - Charlotte (North Carolina, U.S.)
“I didn't know there were garden systems, I could barely tell the difference between potting soil, compost and mulch! I didn't know anything about setting up an irrigation system, I thought those were for fancy lawns. So here I am, with raised garden boxes, planted with some great stuff, and I’ve installed a drip irrigation system.” - Patti (Illinois, U.S.)
"Thank you for answering my questions so thoroughly, especially the one about how much of each crop to grow. Truly your course is the best ever and will recommend it to everyone who is learning to garden. Thank you, thank you, thank you!" - Ann (Oregon, U.S.)
"The LIVE Q&A session helped me fully understand the course material. With this format, I think it's the only way to be sure of things sometimes. Your positive attitude and encouragement during these calls were really appreciate too! The biggest impact for me is having a better sense of confidence that I can grow organic produce successfully, and also the knowledge that I have a safety net if I have questions or problems in the future as an alumni who still has access to question/answer sessions.
