What people are saying:

Emma Castle

Home gardener - Camden, NSW

Toni is the teacher you wish lived next door! She is approachable, practical, fun and her lessons just make sense – no unnecessary frills but nothing is missed either. I only wish I had done this course years ago – I could’ve avoided so much crop failure and pest invasion (but what would gardening be without the humbling lessons in nature vs man, right?). I highly recommend this to anyone starting out, as well as people like me who have been at it for years and making easily avoided mistakes (if you have Toni on your team)!

Anke Libeton

Participant of Harvest Collective, North Sydney

It has been a longstanding dream of mine to grow more of my family's food. I watched many YouTubes about growing and still found myself looking at little tomato seedlings that didn't grow beyond the tiny seedling stage. I had a worm farm that didn't give me much castings and a fairly random approach to planning and planting. Toni the Veggie Lady's courses go beyond this haphazard approach and provide in-depth information and practical solutions to backyard growing problems. My tomato plants started to grow, I am now able to confidently use companion planting and I am working on feeding the soil. I wasn't sure if this course would cover anything that I couldn't just as easily find online, but Toni's enthusiastic and comprehensive teaching provided much more. Inspired by this course, I have planted about 80 plants in the first month and I am starting to see the first capsicums ready to harvest. The face-to-face training, webinars and online training sessions are in-depth, inspiring and fun.

President, Holroyd Garden Club

Toni, is a perfect teacher, as a vegetable gardening expert. The way she explained to our Holroyd Garden Club members today was truly much appreciated. Many have now been inspired to go home and plant some herbs and veggies for themselves.
