iGrowHort-icultural Gardening Home School

We invite you to start gardening at home, or school, and learn to grow flowers, herbs, fruit and vegetables from seed at home-school to feed and fend your Family and Friends with natures bounty. 

Gardening at home or school is much more than just a modern day fad, it pre-dates any war and helps us feed families, and develop strong communities, all contributing towards critical plant-based, planet saving activities, and yet it remains under-paid, over-looked and the first to go in a recession.

 As a community we have lost many of these land-based gardening home skills, growing your own food, cooking home-grown produce, and even exploring plant-based apothecary at home. 

If like me you are interested in reviving these plant-based traditions, fighting against urbanization and ready to start learning to grow at home to grow plants naturally and create wildlife habitats today?

Then it’s time to ‘Viva Nature’ and join a growing revolution, sign up below if you want to enjoy fresh, produce, fruit, flowers, herbs, and vegetables. Plus invite a birds, bees, butterflies, even the odd Hummingbird and heaps of benefical insects to share in your horticultural harvests.
