Learn which trees to grow for bountiful harvests, how to plant them, and take care of them.

Hi, I’m Amanda

I am a mother, a life long gardener and practicing permaculture designer. I've been growing food since I could walk, and understand the value of a sunripened piece of fruit or a crisp leaf of lettuce.

I grew up on a working farm in Michigan, then moved to suburban Central Florida where I quickly learned that growing in Florida was different than Michigan. Years of failing, killing plants, and generally trying everything, (and lots of classes) has led me to know what problems you are likely going to experience. That way, we can avoid the problem in the first place, or quickly solve it if it does come up.

I have a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education, a Permaculture Design Certificate from Grow Permaculture and am nearly done with the Foundations Courses from Dr. Elaine Ingham's Soil Foodweb School.

Learn about semi-tropical fruit trees and how to choose and plant them

One of the biggest savings on groceries is having fresh fruit available in the garden to eat fresh and to preserve the surplus. Fruit trees in the home landscape are beautiful too. This class will highlight some fruit trees that you can grow in your food forest or landscape that will produce abundant harvests, fruit several times a year or growing prolifically.

We will also go over which tree types you can start from seed from the store, which you could get from a fellow gardener, and what you really need to invest in from a reputable plant nursery.
