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."
Mark Diakiw, Classroom Member
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.

"Starting my seeds indoors this spring made ALL the difference! [...] This was where the Vegetable Academy really gave us a leg up. We used your tutorials and have purchased soil blocks and irrigation systems to help these efforts even more next year."

Get to know your instructor...
Jared Regier is an urban farmer and educator from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan who is passionate about building a more sustainable future. He loves teaching people how to grow their own food because it is such a powerful vehicle for positive change in individuals and communities.
For the past 6 years, Jared has run an award winning urban farm so he's obviously pretty comfortable in the vegetable world, but his life experience doesn't begin there. His first career as a high school teacher also helped him develop an ability to simplify and communicate complex ideas. So when the farm started to get noticed and people began to ask if they could learn how to grow vegetables like that in their own backyard, it was only natural for Jared to answer the call. Now, his teaching and farming experience have found perfect harmony here at the Vegetable Academy where he aims to put the knowledge and tools of the vegetable farmer in the hands of the home gardener.
Jared's approach to teaching is organized, logical, and light hearted. He loves to learn and enjoys passing on these lessons to his students and watching them experience success. His practical lessons are always rooted in first hand experience and/or scientific studies because there's no sense in passing on misinformation. Jared delights in helping others take responsibility for growing their own food, and the limitless number of learning opportunities in the vegetable garden are sure to keep this work interesting for years to come.
"When it is easy to start feeling tired and overwhelmed in the garden, I'm thankful for the membership sessions [...] Each month they teach me something new and keep me motivated to get back out in the garden! "
