The Blueprint that gives you the power to lead your children to build an abundant, beautiful, engaging food garden at home with very little effort and time!

Now is the time to start even if there is still snow on the ground! Actually... especially if there is still snow on the ground, because that means you have a short growing season and you need to extend it. Let me show you how. It gets too late too quickly!

 

... Imagine your children planting and harvesting and exploring, connecting with nature, appreciating healthy food, spending more time outside with family and less time inside with technology, season after season!

... Imagine your children coming to your kitchen with veggies freshly harvested from their own garden within just a month or two and enthusiastically doing that throughout the whole growing season!

Kids' food gardens will do the trick! YES! It can happen!

I've done it with my own family! I've seen countless families make it happen! And that's how I know!

Food kids gardens, if done right, 

  • Can transform kids' lives from being practically attached to their screens and only choosing sugary packaged foods and snacks to being excited about hands on with soil and happy about snacking on carrots and even adding a salad to their meals

You can make it happen with ease while having tons of fun with your family

I've seen countless families just like yours and mine make it happen. Families with very similar concerns, hopes and dreams!

This blueprint:

  • Guides you step by step.
  • Helps you avoid the common mistakes.

If it wasn't for this class, as much as I wanted to, I would have never been able to build such an amazing vegetable garden for my daughter!

Leila's class got us as a family to grow food and eat healthier together and that was amazing. The best part is that I didn't have to become an expert gardener. I just followed Leila's instructions and that was it!
