Frequently Asked Questions
What is a typical virtual Coaching Session like?
We will schedule a time for a Zoom video call, preferably during daylight hours where you can be in your garden. We can go over anything you need - seasonal planting, soil amendments, garden location, planting fruit trees, or taking care of your garden. We can even discuss how to involve your children or grandchildren in the garden more!
What if I don't want to use Zoom?
That's quite okay! We can schedule a phone call instead. It would be helpful if you could send pictures by text or email so I can see what your gardens look like and any problems you're having.
Do our Coaching Sessions always need to be on the same day and time?
No way! We understand that life is busy. We can schedule a unique day and time each month.
