The Growing Cycle

This course is designed to help you understand the whole process from seed to table, because true success in the vegetable garden depends on a lot more than how you put your plants in the ground.  The 8 stages of the Growing Cycle will serve as the foundational modules for the course.  By addressing subjects in this natural and logical order, the course content will flow smoothly from one module to the next and students will clearly be able to identify areas for improvement.

"I have studied from some amazing growers over the past 3 years, but I must admit that the Vegetable Academy has become my favourite resource. I really appreciate Jared's style of teaching, organization, and his genuine dedication to growing food."

Course Curriculum


The content in each module is further divided into smaller lessons to help us focus our attention on one subject at a time.  Treat this course content like the vegetable growing education you never got in school, and the course community like the knowledgeable gardening buddy that will help you solve problems and stay motivated along the way. 

We are going to cover a lot together, and the difference between your current garden and your dream garden might seem pretty large right now, but know that you won't be expected to implement all of the changes you want in just one year.  That's a recipe for burnout and the path to self-sufficiency needs to be sustainable, so I would much rather prepare you for success in the long run.  That's why you will be taught to personalize your unique growing cycle, and set specific and achievable targets that will help you make incremental improvements each season.  

"I'm learning so much from the site and I can't wait to take your class when it's available [...] It'll push my gardening level up a few notches and help me produce a bigger yield and longer harvest."
