The NEVER ENDING GARDENING COURSE is our comprehensive and easy-to-follow online course to get you started caring for our EarthBody and growing food at home.

Follow along as our farmers guide you from basic gardening skills all the way to advanced techniques for creating a thriving and nourishing garden space.

New lessons are released every month (hence the "never ending" course), followed by a Live Q&A via Zoom on the 3rd Wednesday of every month.
