All The Tools You Need For Growing Your Own Food as an Intuitive Practice in Your Everyday Life. 

 

"We all have a desire for food security. It's time to nurture that.  Becoming a garden advocate happened for me when I discovered a lack of nutrition in my food choices, and lack of accessibility in my community."

I am so proud of myself. Lol.  I really have enjoyed the experience as a whole, and seeing what everyone is doing!  Our communication back and forth helps me stay motivated to keep going. That's what I need the most, motivation.

I joined because I wanted to learn from an expert about starting my own garden at home. I have gained lots of knowledge about composting, watering, soil components, zones of plants and so much more valuable information. Marlena’s teaching style is very hands-on & personable!

I have to tell you how grateful I am for you and this group! I’m doing things/learning things that I have always dreamed of learning one day, but just hadn’t or didn’t know where to start. It also has really helped switch my focus from the craziness going on. It feels REALLY nice!

Imagine if...

You could convert your green space and design the right garden for your situation:

Containers, in-ground beds, raised beds, or hugelkulter mounds!


You learned how to use fertilizers, compost, and amendments to properly nurture healthy soils and healthy plants!


You felt confident knowing "when to plant what, and how" by understanding crop families & crop rotation!

 

You finally reached your gardening goals and felt supported in your journey!

This is what our Course offers!

Hi, I'm Marlena...

"Gritty, witty, & pretty" as gardening brings out the sexy in all of us.  Dirty hands and boots, hell yes.

Founder and CEO of Guidance for Growers Consulting, LLC.  I educate & empower families to grow food successfully.  

Former veggie farmer at Girl Next Door Farm, and author of Seasonal Rhythms: 2020 Garden Calendar Guide - growing food is truly my calling.  

Becoming a garden advocate happened for me when I discovered a lack of nutrition in my food choices, and lack of accessibility in my community.  I walked away from corporate America to take a farm apprenticeship and never looked back. 

For 6 years I grew over 30 types of fruits, veggies, and herbs - & provided 1000’s of lbs of produce to the Louisville, KY area.

 I grew $30K worth of salad greens, carrots, onions, potatoes, tomatoes, basil, beans, squash, melons, and garlic, etc.

Now working to educate and train others to grow food for their families has been a joy and a privilege.  An important lesson is that there is always more to learn in gardening and that is what makes it fascinating!

So far it's been 100% worthwhile. Not only has the education been invaluable but the physical support Marlena has offered me has been vital to my success this year. I'm eager for the return on my investment! It will be nutritious and delicious and will give back to me and my family for years and years to come. I'm more ambitious than I've ever been and eager to continue learning from Marlena in upcoming programs.

Marlena is very laid back and incredibly knowledgeable! I love her openness to everyone's different gardening styles and set ups. She's as genuine when working with all of us in a group as she is working with us individually. She's not pretentious and will admit when she doesn't know the answers to questions. Then, she's quick to research and provide accurate feedback.

So you're probably thinking...

How important is this?

Very.  Growing food is more than a novelty, it's a discipline.  Which is why our training program is more than just a class.  You will become part of a community that motivates, inspires, & educates you on how to be attentive to your gardens' needs.  You will receive direct mentorship from a horticultural expert for 3 months in the height of the growing season.

All this over a few tomato plants?

No.  If that's all you want to do, this program isn't for you!   We only want ambitious growers in our group.  We welcome container gardeners and field growers alike.  If you wish to grow food for your family, you are a good fit.

Any gardener knows the pure joy of having an abundant harvest.  They also know the heartbreak of garden losses.  Reap What You Sow teaches you gardening fundamentals that will prepare you for such obstacles to ensure your successes.
