Why Become A DirtMagician
Learning to grow food empowers you to understand the fundamentals of how to nourish yourself, your family and teaches you a skill that you can’t lose. In an unpredictable world, the back to the basics skills are immensely valuable & tasty.
Gardening and being a part of a community have amazing physical and mental health benefits. Connecting with a green space and other people helps reduce anxiety, depression, isolation and helps with stress management. Plus it's great physical exercise too!
The price of everything is increasing. Why not grow a few organic vegetables in your space (containers on balconies, backyards, front-yards, terraces) and remove that line item on your grocery bills?
Taste & Nutrition
When done right, food you grow in your space, is far more delicious and nutrient dense compared to food that has been grown for travel and sold on grocery stores shelves.
Learning with and from others in a safe community of like minded food-growers, makes the experience more joyful and less intimidating.
Agriculture can be a source of so many environmental issues globally. When done right in our yards, growing food in a bio-diverse way can be part of a solution to many environmental issues.

Beginner | Working Professional
The DirtMagicians coaching program and community was life-changing! I've always wanted to learn how to grow my own vegetables and food garden, but was too intimidated/overwhelmed with getting started. The 1-on-1 coaching gave me the confidence that anyone can grow their own food. It was simple, easy, supportive and fun to learn from my own garden coach! Along the way I also learnt the importance of native plants, pollinator friendly flowers, caring for the beneficial insects and bees, and how a strong community can really support the process of growing food. I can proudly call myself a food gardener, today!
Beginner | Retiree
This community has taught me to be a lifetime fan of growing food. Bring on water and sun, followed by the bee, the bird, the butterfly, who visit the garden and pollinate for riches. The riches are deep green, purple, yellow, orange and red foods, aside multicolored flowers to share the nourishment. Not a gardener? Ha! Oh yes you can be. Victory is not in getting it perfect, but enjoying the imperfect magic of growing. Come join us!
Beginner | Student
Through DirtMagicians, I've been able to learn the necessary skills and knowledge to become an independent gardener in one growing season. Not only did I learn how to grow food, but also how I can increase insect biodiversity, importance of native and pollinator plants, understanding and identifying good or bad insects and the importance of healthy soil! I feel empowered by being part of a community of like-minded gardeners who are passionate about growing food and contributing to the environment positively
Intermediate | Working Professional
This course and the on-site training are amazing. I’ve gone from a nervous, frustrated gardener to an enthusiastic and happy gardener. Bri and Dee really know their topics and they get in people that have amazing knowledge and resources. We’ve been able to share with each other, grow as a community and grow our gardens. It is well thought out, and I would recommend it to anyone who would like to try to grow food in their yards and be more sustainable as well as helping the planet for our future generations.
These are the most ideal growing locations, based on our current growing programs. However, our programs are a useful resource no matter where on earth your garden resides.
