What students have to say:

“Stacey’s passion for edible gardening makes creating a garden seem easily doable.  What a fun and inspiring class!  Stacey loves edible gardening and it spread to everyone in our class.  We had the most amazing group of passionate, creative fun-loving gardeners in our class, and the class was full of great information and how to’s to successfully create a delicious edible garden.”


“I didn’t know what permaculture was before the class.  Now I’m super motivated to create a growing environment that flows with Nature.  I love the idea of replenishing soil without trauma.  Stacey’s handouts were very useful, and she’s exemplary how she maximizes spaces of all kinds.  This class was a great catalyst for a brown thumb like me, and I now have a thriving new food garden that I’m addicted to.  I’m even turning my deck plants into exciting edibles.  Extra bonus:  delicious get-togethers with the other students.  Thanks, Stacey!”

“The course was not only a wonderful way to introduce me to gardening, but a means by which to meet many like-minded souls.  The relationships I’ve developed within the class, will support me as I “get my feet wet” (get my hands dirty?) in growing my own food.”

-Kim R

“Stacey Meinzen’s Edible Yardworks class was very informative and motivating. We met weekly, for 4 weeks and formed a bond.  This intimate group of avid edible gardeners now share information and help each other grow local
beautiful and delicious gardens.”
