From buying seeds to harvesting, I’ve had the support needed."

"It's a MUST HAVE course!"

Mindy Dickason

Carol Flanagan

It has all the tools you need. You can use all of them, or just when you have specific questions.

Nicole Johnsey Burke

Nicole Johnsey Burke, Founder of Gardenary, Inc. is on a crusade to bring back the kitchen garden, make gardening a profitable profession again, and basically save the planet one garden at a time. After starting Rooted Garden in 2015, a business that designs, installs and maintains kitchen gardens in Houston, TX, Nicole launched Gardenary, a tech company that’s taught 1000s of students how to garden and trained hundreds of gardeners to start their own garden coach businesses. In early 2020, Nicole launched the Gardenary platform and her breakthrough book, Kitchen Garden Revival, released spring of 2020.

Kitchen Garden Academy Alumni

"Once the joy of my life, now my raised bed traditional gardens had become a nightmare, and I was ready to give up gardening for good. The demolition crew was contracted and had begun tearing out the beds to plant grass. Then I came across KGA. The training breathed life into my dying dream, and I once again had hope that I could have a garden system that wouldn't require all my time. I immediately halted the crew and gave new instructions. Now I have a gorgeous oasis that fills me with joy once again. I am not exaggerating when I say KGA gave me my life back!"


"I loved being part of this group. The knowledge, the step-by-step instructions, and the support from other gardeners and Nicole and the staff were invaluable. It’s more than just a garden; it’s a source of wonder and joy. It never disappoints, and when it does, there are solutions to explore and encouragement. It’s life-changing."


"This garden install was part of a DIY total land and home renovation. We had the elbow grease but lacked the garden know-how. KGA simplified the process from planning to harvest and equipped us with the tools and confidence we needed to make our family’s kitchen garden dreams come true. Thank you, Nicole and KGA. We are forever grateful!"


"I have learned a lot even though I have been gardening for a while."


"Kitchen Garden Academy helped give me the tools for understanding how to create a garden from the ground up that is practical, productive, and pretty. I used to kill every plant given to me and had no idea where to even start to grow my own garden. It has been so satisfying to be able to eat from our garden and even share harvests with friends!"


"KGA is a place to keep your motivation and learn from others' mistakes - when I shared my location and saw issues or problems, I was met with encouragement and permission."


"The investment is worth your time and is an educational hobby. Join!"


"The placement, quality of plants and the soil proved the decades of mistakes that I have made. I wasted time and money on unproductive plants. In less than 6 weeks I am harvesting food. At the price of fresh food, I am so pleased! And I know it is chemical free. If I have questions there are videos for that!"
