The workshops with Brijette have been so useful to me as a beginner-level gardener. It can be really overwhelming getting started, but she breaks it down so that you can easily digest it and then directly apply it to your garden at home. Definitely recommend and I look forward to future classes!

The class helped lay a fundamental knowledge base about soil, fertilizers, seeds, history and so much more; that I will be able to implement into my garden now and in the future!

The beginning gardening class helped to take my gardening skills to the next level. The opportunity to study on the farm was key to reinforce what we learned in class. Brijette was kind, knowledgeable and so generous.

I only took one day of the beginning gardening but loved it. I also loved the seed swap idea at the end. The potluck is also a great communal piece.

The class was well thought out and very informative at all levels. I was able to leave each class and immediately apply what I learned that day. Brijette is a true wealth of knowledge and very understanding! Everyone should take her class.

10 reviews for Beginner Gardener Online Class for Zones 9 and 10

  1. Molly

    I just took the Beginner Gardener Online Class and absolutely LOVED it. I am a verrrry new gardener and was nervous the class would be over my head. But instead, it made gardening seem very accessible and provided the most important aspects to think about when starting to garden. I’ve always felt like getting into gardening would require sooo much research and money, but this class finally answered the question of where to start! I appreciated that I could ask questions at any time and the other participants asked great questions that I would not have thought of. Overall, if you’re thinking about taking the class–do it! I highly recommend it!

    This class is essential to gain foundational principles for successful gardening. Brijette’s deep understanding of this material is matched only by her infectious enthusiasm and passion to share her honed knowledge. I especially appreciated her focus on overcoming regional gardening challenges (no matter the region you find yourself in), resources for gardeners that I didn’t know existed, and efficiency and cost conscious practices for the gardener trying to get the best yield in a small space. Bravo Brijette! I could have avoided some poor outcomes if I had taken the class sooner.

  3. Christina Ortiz (verified owner)

    As a very new gardener, this class was a blessing. I feel a lot more confident in starting my fall garden. Having a Zone oriented class really helped me narrow in my concerns about planting in SoCal. Thanks Brijette for make this new kid feel very welcomed.

  4. Angela E (verified owner)

    What a great class!! Answered so many questions I’ve had on my gardening journey. What a wonderful way to spend a Friday night. I feel armed with enough info and knowledge where to get answers to get braver. Loved it.

  5. Heather McLaughlin (verified owner)

    This course is fantastic! Filled with information and incredible tips from an expert. Brijette is a wonderful resource and I feel so lucky to have learned from her. Already applying the things learned. Thank you!

  6. Callie Hewitt (verified owner)

    Total beginner here, and I signed up for the workshop and my only regret is I didn’t attend sooner. Chalk full of evidence-based information, resources, and personal encouragement Brijette loves what she does. Just don’t mention growing brussel sprouts! JK On a more serious note, a beginner like me was encouraged to ask all the questions I had without fear of looking silly. Additionally, the other attendees are encouraging, asking their questions, and having a great time. If you’re on the fence about the class, it is worth every penny! 2 hours for a full 101 class!

  7. Erin Heimburge

    I had a really great time in this workshop. Brijette tailored the workshop to the knowledge levels of the participants and helped us to stay engaged. She provided great resources so we know where to look when questions arise. You can tell that Brijette loves what she does. Thank you!!

  8. Karina Ascencio (verified owner)

    Very informative class! Bridjette is amazing. Learned a lot about the zones in our area and what can and probably will not grow. She welcomed all questions and answered them thoroughly. Highly recommend this class!

  9. Emily R (verified owner)

    Great class for beginners and veterans alike! Brijette is passionate about gardening and her energy, engagement and knowledge base made this class a very worthy investment. I feel much more empowered in my garden after taking this course. Thank you!
