Video Consults


No consults for a while my friends, I’m tied up till Autumn 21 writing my next book! I’m still here for you with my monthly newsletter, and every now and then, a very helpful hot tip via facebook or instagram. See you on the flip side, Kath xx

Practical, down to earth advice personalised to you and your garden.
Video consults are awesome… as good as the real thing, but without the driving! Are we champions for the environment or what!

  • An experienced ear to find the problem and solve it.
  • A way forward. To make your life easier and your garden strong.
  • A shot of inspiration, to encourage you along and get you growing!

Expert help for fruit trees, vegetable gardens, wind shelter, natives, chooks and companion plants – whatever you need, where ever you’re at – I’ll take your food garden to the next level.

We’ll talk for the amount of minutes you’ve paid for. Then I write up our notes, add links and other helpful bits, and send them through to you.

Wow these notes are amazing. Thank you so much for your wonderful video consult, you should charge more for your time! — Clare Teschendorf

4 Easy Steps

1. Join Zoom

I use Zoom for all my video consults. It’s the same as Skype, only better. So first thing for you to do is to sign up to the free option of Zoom. Do it here.

2. Book In

Wednesday is the day I do video consults. Book in here. Include a short note with your booking letting me know what you need help with.

3. Be Ready

  • Device fully charged.
  • Sound, check.
  • Camera, check.
  • Signal check – walk around your garden to check where signal is strong and where it dips out. We need to stay connected 🙂
  • Know how to flip your screen from your beautiful face to your garden

About 10 minutes before we start I will send you the link to our meeting via your email address. Simply click on it and consult a go.

Price – $75 for 30 mins, $140 for 60 mins, $178.25 for 90 minutes

Wish we’d done the phone consult sooner. It gave us a clear direction and the confidence to move forward. We were really happy with it. — Deb and Paul Mander

Hey Kath, Thank you so much! You answered all the questions that I had and I’m not overwhelmed with too much info. I really appreciate your help, it’s just spot on. Thanks”– Ruth

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 space as well as 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
