In order to bring about that mission, we have to make gardening knowledge easily accessible. We produce tons of free content here on the Gardenary blog and on YouTube to spread the joy of growing in the kitchen garden, and we also add more courses each month to our growing catalog of online garden courses.

I've wanted to create a kitchen garden for years. I bought books & mined Pinterest, but the information there was overwhelming & inconsistent. It was clear that your content was far more approachable than any other resource I’ve come across. I was initially hesitant about the cost, but KGA has been worth every penny. The content is well organized, concise, and ultra informative. It gave me the confidence to finally create the kitchen garden I had been dreaming of.

I'd tried a handful of times (unsuccessfully) to have a small patio garden over the past several years and never had very good yield out of what I put into it. Slowing down and going through the planning stages properly is really what made the difference for me.
