A Joyful Experience

We're working to create an awesome experience that helps you grow. Here are 5 key benefits of joining Gardens That Matter:

  1. Get exclusive content and conversation about gardening you can’t find anywhere else that are designed to help you make progress. Our Success Path and monthly themes will guide the way. 

  2. Meet other gardeners who live near you or in a similar ecoregion, who face the same challenges, who share your interests, or who care about the same gardening topics.

  3. Gain knowledge and skills that make you a more confident gardener. You’ll be able to make better decisions, and ultimately, experience more abundance and success in your garden. 

  4. Swap stories, experiences, and ideas around our shared mission. You can build deeper connections (without the ads and distractions of social media) and be yourself here!

  5. Find inspiration and get encouragement from your fellow gardeners each time you log in.

Our Wish for You

Colby and I founded Gardens That Matter in 2014 to help make the world a better place in very real ways: healthy food, good soil, a love of nature, resilient ecosystems and communities. This is why we garden and are passionate about helping you grow.

Our garden is far from perfect, but it is full of the things that matter most to us—food, beauty, wildlife, opportunities to care for others and the earth. 

My wish for you is to have the same: a garden that matters to you.

And a community to help you grow it!

Equity & Access

We offer a sliding scale for our monthly membership fee. This allows us to create an accessible community and a sustainable business so our team can continue to facilitate classes and support your gardening journey.

We're also dedicated to supporting gardeners who are BIPOC and growers working to rematriate land and build seed sovereignty through sponsored memberships.

To get started, let's have a quick email conversation. No pressure and no stress. We'll work together to find a payment option or sponsorship level that feels right. Simply email me
