Regenerative Climate Victory Gardening Workshops and Consultations
Group Zoom Learning Sessions: Regenerative Climate Victory Garden Basics: Getting Started I & II. I will cover soil, compost, and growing food basics. (1 hour) Date and time to be announced depending on participants needs. May 15th-June 15th.
$10 per person per session/free for those who sign up to do individual consultations
Steps 1: Initial Consultation (30-45 min)
A 30-45 min walk through of your property to envision your goals for your growing space and to identify potential sites for your garden.
Step 2: Site Analysis and Getting Started
If after step one you would like to continue to work with me on your garden design, I will do a more in depth site analysis and assessment of potential growing spaces including solar readings to identify the amount of sunlight available. I will demonstrate how to do soil samples, identify current plant species that may have an impact on your garden decisions, and help you further define your goals and vision for your garden.
Post visit, I will write up a short report to send to you that will restate your goals and vision, include my observations and basic recommendations, soil building instructions, and some resources for you to explore.
Every individual's site and needs are different. Based on past experience, in addition to 1-2 hours to write a customized report for you and gather resources, I estimate an hour or two for the site visit and 2-4 hours for additional site visits or consulting time via zoom, text or phone to discuss plant selection and their care requirements and to answer any questions you might have.
This may be all you need or want to get started. If you want further help with your garden design, continue on to Step 3.
In response to the coronavirus, I am reducing my rates to $100-$150 dependent on size, complexity and level of need. I will provide an estimate after the initial consultation. I plan to provide a number of consultations at minimal to no cost for those with limited income and need. Please inquire. From past experience, I estimated between 4-6 hours for spaces no larger than 1000 sq ft.
Step 3: Garden Design Plan
Time to generate your garden design. I can either give you the tools and information you need to sketch the design yourself and give you feedback or I can sketch the design for you based on our conversations to date. I will send videos and articles to help support you in the garden design and plant selection process.
The design will include recommended plants (exact locations, spacing & quantities, planting plan/times, maintenance instructions), soil building maintenance instructions, and instructions on how to build and maintain your own vermicomposting bin.
An additional cost: I will write up an estimate for you dependent on garden size, complexity and projected hours required. I plan to provide a number of consultations at minimal to no cost for those with limited income and need.
