Garden Coach

$ 50 inc GST
  • Garden coaching is 20 minutes
    one on one
    with me.

    Use it
    whenever you are stuck.
    Fruit trees, vegies, compost, chooks -
    whatever aspect of your food garden isn't working,
    I'll unstick you,
    and get you up and running again.
  • Write your questions out, so you don't forget any on the day!
    Put the most important questions at the top of your list.
  • Have your list of questions
    and a pad and pencil
    so you can note all your learnings down.

    Make this coaching session yours:
    If you need me to re explain, or slow down or to keep moving, you say so!

    Get what you need, it's why I'm here.

"Such good value! Kath got straight to the heart of the matter - even over the video feed, she spotted the 2 main problems and re-organised our garden layout while answering our questions. We're excited about the possibility that our food growing endeavours will finally be a success! Thank you Kath. We'll be back."

Peter and Karen, Auckland

"Thanks so much for your wisdom - I'm glad I chatted with you before I made any changes as you have pretty much turned my original plans on their head - the ideas you came up with make so much sense when I think about it, and I guess that comes with your experience. You have saved me some big bucks."

Andrea Potter, Kapiti

"Kath is so practical and down to earth. She was able to respond to our questions with positive and useful advice. She wasn't fazed by our challenging block of land and together we worked out a manageable plan. Its peace of mind for us, having practical steps to take ".

John and Diane Baldwin, Paraparaumu


Life happens, my friend, no problems at all.

Open your booking confirmation email and scroll down until you find the Date/ Time heading.

There you will see the option to cancel/ reschedule your appointment.

Click on it and go through the steps.

The first step, before we get together, is for you to gather some important info.

  1. You need to work out what you want to grow + build
  2. You need to learn all about your climate and land.

The most effective way to do this is by making a basemap + a wishlist. All the instructions are here

Don’t rush this step. Its the most important bit! Take the time. It sets you up for greatness. 

While you gather all this information, grow all your vegies/ herbs/ flowers in pots and containers in a sunny spot, close by the house. 

And then when you are done, you’re ready to book me in, or infact go it alone and work your own design up.  

A Garden Coach session is best suited to the kind of questions that we can sit and chat about – which is pretty much everything from greencrops to chickens to compost to feeding regimes to how to get the most out of your greenhouse. 

At the heart of most garden problems is soil. If your questions involve pest or disease or ailing plants, be intimate with your soil, so you can describe it to me. 

Never fear my friend – it’s really easy!

You’ll receive a link to our meeting in the booking confirmation email.
