Our Mission

To encourage and support food production in the home landscape, nurturing people, Earth, and community.


The Beginnings

Teach Me To Grow was born in 2015 while I was weeding my garden in Denver. After spending years working all over the horticulture industry from commercial greenhouse production to small farm installations,

I've come to know that growing food is what's most important.

I feel oftentimes folks are turned off or intimidated by the idea of gardening even through they are interested because perhaps it's out of their wheelhouse, not enough time, or they feel they are cursed with a "black thumb".

I decided that providing gardening knowledge that is approachable, practical, and accessible is a service that can help to create and establish hundreds of new gardeners!...

...Resulting in hundreds of new gardens and a deeper awareness and connection to ourselves, each other and our planet.


The benefits of a food-producing garden or landscape way overarch just the quality of food that comes out of it! 

Gardens have a way of creating positive change and I wish for all of those who work with us to get to experience that magic that comes from the garden.

Let's garden our way into a healthier, more connected future.
