During the past 25 years, I’ve met personally with hundreds and hundreds of home gardeners—some brand new to gardening and some who have gardened for decades. These gardeners have come to my university courses, master gardener lectures, and home and community garden visit looking for practical insights on how to grow vegetable gardens. Millions more—as many as 10 million visitors a year–have visited my website Harvesttotable.com. All are interested in how to grow their best vegetable garden—whether it’s a few pots on the balcony, a backyard garden, or a community garden plot.
Many have asked for an online course that brings my talks and lectures together in one place. This course—Vegetable Garden Grower’s Masterclass—and the accompanying book—the Vegetable Garden Grower’s Guide—deliver the growing knowledge and tips that I have learned first-hand and the knowledge I have learned from many master gardeners and students that I have had the privilege to work with through the years This course brings together my years of in-garden and classroom lectures and talks—more than 175 topics in 8 lessons.
It is the course I have taught and refined in gardens and classrooms over nearly three decades. It is the course hundreds and hundreds of my university students have taken—some more than once, always looking to learn more about growing the food we and our families love to eat.<
