Need some help learning how to get your local food growing?

Face it, you’ve been thinking about how fulfilling it would be to eat homegrown. You know you’d like to start growing good stuff to eat, smell, and look at. But you haven’t the first clue how to go from the ideas in your head of an oasis, to making a garden of Eden at your place.

You’ve got the yard, but not the garden. Let me help you.

Especially if you have experienced the dark side of gardening- dead plants, failed gardens, pest attacks, wasted money, aaahhhh, then you need help reconnecting with the joys of gardening.

Let me help you find methods, techniques or plants that will be successful for You!

How can I help you find the joys of gardening again? I have years of organic gardening knowledge and I talk to every gardener- newbie or old timer who gardens too. I’ve been gardening since I was born- maybe before- and have had my own garden for over 15 years.

Howdy folks, I’m Rachel Strivelli. I believe that getting our hands in the dirt is good for everyone.
