Bring Your Dream Garden Coach Business to Life

Now Accepting Applicants for Summer 2022 Session

The training, mentorship, and peer support you need to set up, grow and scale your Garden Consulting business.

- Jamie Brennan, Gold Feather Gardens

“The Garden Coach Society helped me skip so many hurdles in setting up my business. GCS gave me the confidence and tools for my company to gross so much that it paid back my investment in GCS almost 50 times over in just one year, even in a climate that has a true winter!”

Ever wish you could turn your love for gardening into...

  • A business that coaches others to create beautiful outdoor spaces or lush green community spaces?
  • A scalable gardening company that you've already established and just need help growing it or move it in a new direction?
  • An additional income stream where you can make an impact & money all 12 months of the year?
Sarah Landers, Brick Street Flowers

I’d never thought I could make money off of my gardening knowledge.

"Hearing Nicole talk about the possibilities of garden-based business blew my mind! I’d never thought I could make money off of my gardening knowledge. Suddenly my baby flower business had all kinds of growth potential, and I knew Nicole’s training would set me up for long term success."

Because what people want NOW more than ever is

  • To get started with confidence and bust the “I’m a serial plant killer” myth
  • The training or the know-how to do this on their own or as a family-friendly hobby
  • To work with someone who’s successfully gardening in the same climate and growing season as them
  • To feel a sense of pride and joy that comes from sharing (and showing off) herbs and vegetables grown in their gardens.


Without reading how-to articles, watching tutorials on YouTube, signing up for DIY gardening projects, or wishing for a magical gardening gene in their bodies.

That's where you come in!

YOU'VE GOT THE OPPORTUNITY TO:

  • Educate
  • Train
  • Coach
  • Consult
  • Provide Instruction
  • Offer Informative Design


For clients who HAVE the time & willingness but don’t necessarily have the skills or guidance of an expert to help them

If You Want To Launch & Scale A Garden Coaching Business In Less than 12 Weeks...

You need access to these 4 critical Elements for Growth

(You get all Four in Garden Coach Society - more about that in a moment)

Robust Training:

It’s one thing to have a passion for gardening, the skills, or the self-perceived ‘green thumb’ to get started in this industry. But it’s a whole different skill set, training, and experience to build a business from the ground up, and grow and scale it. From getting your legal ducks in a row to hiring, financials, developing your offer suite, and communicating with clients - it’s imperative to have your bases covered. And a strong business foundation will set you apart from someone who’s never been on a client site to someone who confidently knows their way around.

- KELLY CROTTY, Kelly's Creations in the CLE

My company made a big shift after GCS

“You have to get paid for your time. No more free estimates. We're not a landscaping company. That's the big shift I had. I'm a garden consultant and I charge for my time.”

Community:

Imagine a private community populated with other garden coaches building their businesses alongside yours. No more doing this alone. Struggling with self-doubt. Or having no one to talk to who simply ‘gets it.’ Because here’s the thing... Left alone to your devices, it’s easy to flounder, procrastinate, and ultimately give up on your entrepreneurial dreams. Being part of a community of like-minded people who’ve got skin in the game (and dirt under their nails), genuinely want to see you succeed, and are there for you when you want to bounce ideas, share successes, and lift your tanking spirits when things don’t work out - is the space you keep coming back to when you need to refuel your ‘go-getter’ tank.

- LATASHA HARRELL, Aneu Harvest

There's an overall desire to see each other succeed

“What I love most about GCS is the leadership and community. I've never been apart of a group of people that are eager to help, pass on knowledge, share experiences and just an over all desire to see each other succeed.”

Mentorship:

Whether it’s questions on design installations, pricing your minimum viable product, or your latest Netflix fix - be rest assured that you can lean on a group of strong mentors for answers. Feedback that’s experience-rich and data-backed can get you unstuck within minutes, instead of partying with your (self) doubts in your brain (which never works!) Case in point: I (Nicole) bring my 6 years of experience, training, and all the lessons rom launching and scaling two multi-six figure businesses - while raising four kids. Trust me, I can handle what you’ve got 😊

- CANDICE CULLEN, Candice Cullen Holistic

You'll have the foundation for a great business

“The weekly meetings with Nicole and seeing all the other coaches and the support during those calls is what I love the most about the program. I also like the layout of setting up the coaching business. When it is followed you’ll have the foundation for a great business.”

Authority:

The quickest way to get validation... followed by a “when can we get started?” in the early stages as a garden coach? Three words. Third-party validation. (Or are those two words? IDK - I’m a gardener and coach.) If a credible source talks about you and your business it opens tightly shut doors with more ease. Especially if that credible source features over 100s of certified garden coaches so they can connect with other industry professionals and excited clients. And not just a “graduate from the program, send us a link to your website, and a pretty headshot” kinda deal that collects digital dust in the interwebs and is sadly forgotten. But an active platform that’s hit with 50,000 of qualified views on the daily, increasin your chances of getting seen, contacted, and hired in your local area. *Time for a humble brag* I do all of this and more...just ask my students 😊

Meet the Director

Hey there! I’m Nicole Burke.

Mom of 4, home gardener, dog lover, and a published author. Founder of Rooted Garden, Inc. and Gardenary, Inc. - two companies in the garden industry with different business models and services.

Meet some of our successful graduates

- KEELY MASSIE, Appalachian Kitchen Gardens

Nothing else compares...

“Garden Coach Society opened my eyes to a whole new way of creating an income doing what I love. I have run another small business for 4 years and have taken other online courses for business and marketing, but none have been as comprehensive as Garden Coach Society. I have even taken things I’ve learned in this course and gone back and made changes in my other (unrelated to gardening) business. It really is that good. Worth the investment!”

- MEGAN WAKEFIELD, Walking Wild Herbs

Totally worth it!

“I joined the Garden Coach Society in May, and I am stunned by the amount of support, information, and advice that I have found here!

- NaTasha Lax, 31 Eden

Member for life!

“Have you been in a place where you know where you want to go but not sure how to get there? That was me. I knew I wanted to teach people how to garden and install it for them but did not know how to do it or how to get started. Garden Coach Society has been an amazing introduction into my life and business.”

Here’s The Exact Training Roadmap

Before you begin diving into the core modules of the GCS curriculum...

✔How this simple activity increases your productivity and profitability

✔Discover the 5 principles of money mindset that’ll help you transform into a value-driven entrepreneur, a clear thinker, and an abundance attractor.

In this module, you’ll narrow your business focus and pick your market, level, and specialty so you can develop a specific marketing message instead of a watered-down version.

Module 2: Garden Coach Industry

Module 2 Highlights:

✔Choose 1 out of the 3 types of markets you can focus on to acquire clients so that you don’t dilute your marketing efforts (time + money + energy) by going too broad.

Get excited because this module’s all about developing products your ideal clients will happily purchase.

Module 3: Pathway

Module 3 Highlights:

In this module, learn the 5P Process for developing products that your clients will fall in love with.

✔Create your ideal client avatar. This information is key to successful product development - without which you’ll blunt your sales message & hurt your overall sales.

✔Map out the steps your client takes from where they are to the final transformation (through your service).

✔Discover the 3-step approach will help you show up as a trustworthy professional so you can exude confidence.

✔Get excited because you’ll bring your product(s) to market. Don’t worry you’ll get plenty of examples so you get an idea of how to apply this to your business.

In this module, you’ll discover how to think of your garden coaching business beyond the money.

Get your most critical business essentials setup and taken care of.

Module 5: Setup

Module 5 Highlights:

From choosing a name for your company (one of the most challenging things to do, equivalent to naming your firstborn) to getting the legalities of setting up your shop, deciding on what services to offer, and pricing them without feeling stuck... 

Get your 5 most critical business setup decisions (hint: legal + financial) done and dusted so you can move onto the fun stuff; i.e. making offers and working with clients.

Gardenary’s 5C-Level Framework so you can bring in income - even before you’re certified. No more waffling or indecision.

Map out your first or multiple products as per the service level you’ve chosen above so you can feature them on your website, making it easy for your clients to hire you.

Discover the 3-level pricing framework that helps beginner to advanced garden coaches price their offers and cements their confidence - without feeling scared or letting the “What if they don’t pay?” overcloud their mindset.

Map out your entire profit plan for the year & break it down into quarterly, monthly, and weekly goals to meet your annual numbers (goodbye overwhelm and the “I don’t know what to sell this week”)

Devise a weekly communication plan so you can build a loyal following (email list and/or social media) that craves to work with you.

In this module, we’re going to talk about how to lead as a CEO & create a thriving structure for your business.

Module 6: Structure

Module 6 Highlights:

✔Learn what it takes for sustainable growth, putting systems in place making it easy for you, the CEO to step away from the daily grind, and how to come up with fresh product ideas in your business.  

✔Learn how you can develop standard operating procedures so you can transition away from the day-to-day and step into the leadership role for your company.

✔Discover how to develop your products and move forward in your coaching career. I’ll show you what NOT to do when it comes to naming your price and why offering only ONE type of product does you more harm than good.

✔Learn how you can take your specific area of expertise and plug it into multiple product levels (from beginner to advanced) to make income and impact.

✔How to be productive and protective with your time so you can complete more tasks and feel a deep sense of accomplishment.

In this module, I’m going to pull back the curtain on my two businesses - Gardenary & The Rooted Garden, and reveal All.The.Secrets. I’ve implemented to create multi 6-figure companies that aren't slowing down anytime soon.

Module 7: Gardenary Pathway

Module 7 Highlights:

If you choose to follow the Gardenary Pathway in your own garden coaching business, I’ll show you exactly how to adapt these processes for your own business.

Elements: You’ll get acquainted with the 5 specific & proven elements we include in our designs offered at The Rooted Garden and Gardenary. How this helps you: When you work for us, you’ll have a deep understanding of these 5 elements so that you can confidently design and offer accurate estimates in virtual client meetings.

How this helps you: When you work for us, you’ll use these 3 promises with Gardenary’s clients (or you can adapt them). Your ability to deliver on these promises will rapidly establish you as one of the most sought-after garden coaches.

This module’s all about creating a strong visual storefront, turning on a faucet of potential customers that eventually lead to sales, and strengthening your client relationship skills.

Whether you’re starting with $5/day or $50/week, you’ll learn what you need to do to quickly get started to run profitable ads that increase signs up on your email list or purchases of low-cost products.

Get An Insider’s Look At the Garden Coach Society

Let's hear from some of our Garden Coaches

- CALLIE MURPHY, Learn to Bloom

Worth every penny I paid...

“Garden Coach Society has been a huge blessing. I never realized how much "business" there is to owning a business! It has stretched me, and I'm still stretching. It has pulled me out of my comfort zone. But the program and the support of the Society is more than I could have dreamed. I only wish I knew about it sooner. I had no idea this was a career possibility. It is worth every penny I paid.”

- INES BATTERTON, My Nordic Garden

Signed up clients 2 months in...

“If it wouldn't have been for GCS, I most likely wouldn't have started my business yet. It showed and guided me on the path to finally go for my dream job. Just two months in, I'm already acquiring clients and a co-operation with a local organic seed company.”

- KALI GILLESPIE, Kitchen Garden Company

Business success in my first year...

“Nicole's extensive tutorials & the practical supportive Facebook group members have been absolutely invaluable in helping me launch a successful business in my first year.”

- PERNETHYIA HARMON, The Backyard Garden Experience LLC

Offering paid consultations and workshops...

“GCS has unleashed my inner thrill for marketing. I am currently using these skills to enhance other entrepreneurial avenues in my life. GCS has also helped my network of friends and gardeners grow. Now I am a part of a group of people who are willing to support each other, be a guide and positive influence to each other. I am confidently conducting workshops and consultations to paying customers. Thank you for everything, Nicole and GCS.”

“Will this work if I live in a region with a cold climate or a short growing season?”

ANSWERS TO THIS & OTHER QUESTIONS YOU’RE PROBABLY THINKING RIGHT NOW

From my garden to yours... A final note...

If you’ve read this far on the page, it’s time to make a decision. 

Here’s what I know for sure... 

Garden Coach Society is unlike any other program out there. 

Trust me, I’ve scanned the landscape (pun intended). 

I’ve built two multi-six-figure companies in this industry ( Rooted Garden Inc. & Gardenary Inc.) without external funding, minimal savings, and zero connections. 

I know what it's like to have passion, enthusiasm, and the willingness to create something of your own. On your own terms...but not without its challenges such as no roadmap, no community, and no mentor to guide you. 

You have dreams. 

Dreams to create a profitable business so you can dictate your own hours. 

Dreams to create, cultivate community, and guide others.

Dreams to do good in the world and make a difference.
