In Your Garden
One-on-One educational gardening sessions in your own backyard.
What better way to learn about maintaining an edible garden than working in your own with an expert? If you're interested in growing your own food but doubtful of your ability to be successful on your own, we would love to work with you and teach you all that we know of how to grow food in the desert. Invite a Thrive gardener out to your residence for a one-on-one educational gardening session where you will learn about the intricate details of edible gardening, tuned specifically to your space, the plants you're growing and your personal horticultural preferences.
You can also sign up for weekly or monthly sessions with a Thrive gardener and we'll be sure to keep you and your garden on track. With all there is to know about edible gardening, this education is highly valuable and recommended for novice gardeners.
If you haven't already, head over to our online resources!
