Ever wanted your family to always eat beautiful in season organic produce ALL the time?


Do you feel like every time you try to grow something, nature just has different plans?


Does the thought of growing food overwhelm you?


Do you just need a little bit of inspiration/motivation to get your hands dirty again?


Have you started your veggie patch and had one good season that's never been repeated?

Growing food is fast becoming a lost art.

It's feared, it's unknown, it can be challenging, it's rebellious.

But it's not hard.


I can show you how!

How would it feel..


To grow your own amazing organic produce that you can't get at the store.


To get access to loads of food growing resources.


Feel well supported in your food growing journey with loads of support and information (relevant to you!)


Get help and assistance when things just aren't growing or the pests and diseases have moved in. 


To always have something to harvest from your patch


Connect with like minded people who 'get it'. A place where you can share your excitement over that perfect carrot and not be ridiculed for not knowing something.

Kind words

I’ve put off establishing a veggie patch due to renting, terrible soil quality, not enough time...any excuse really. This community is so helpful and gives me a way to start out using a structured approach learning from others as I go along. Loving the growers challenge in particular, as it’s thing I wouldn’t thing of growing, but it’s given me somewhere to start which was the biggest issue for me. There’s still not enough time in the day though!


I love the community Nicki has created. It was very exciting when I received the seeds for the challenges. And her tips and hints throughout the season has been very appreciated!

I am so happy with what I’m learning from Nicki. I’ve always done a bit of gardening but so much I didn’t know, especially about soil! I wouldn’t call myself a green thumb by any means, but the improvements are certainly there!


If you're passionate about the food you put into your families mouths, then it's time to get growing your own delicious food!
