Learn amazingly simple techniques for taking hundreds or thousands of cuttings of your favorite plants and turning them into new plants that you can either plant or sell.

This is the first and most basic in a series of very useful courses on plant propagation. Upon completion of all the classes, I am confident that you will have more practical and useful knowledge on the subject of propagation than if you went to a university for 4 years. I’ve done the university thing. The teaching was atrocious, the practical application non-existent, and the usefulness was nowhere to be seen. I learned more in 6 months of doing the techniques contained in this course than I ever retained from years of college.

If you have ever looked into the cost of planting a food forest, or even a pretty landscaping job purely for aesthetic reasons, you quickly learned how the plants can cost a small fortune. You would probably be interested if I told you that you could with a relatively small investment in time and materials turn out thousands of productive and beautiful plants every year. You might say, but I have a brown thumb. To that I would say, anybody can have a green thumb if they just follow some common sense approaches to plant care. I’ll tell you right now that having a green thumb is nothing more than attention to detail and consistency.

When you sign up for this course you learn amazingly simple techniques for taking hundreds or thousands of cuttings of your favorite plants and turning them into new plants that you can either plant on your own land or sell for a nice profit.

This course contains lecture and on-site demonstration where Nick will show you how to graft, start plants from cuttings, show how to build and set up a mist system from the ground up, how to take cuttings, prep and process the plant materials, as well as how to process some seeds.

Nick will help you assess if you need a greenhouse or other structures.

We will go step-by-step through very actionable information that will have you replicating and growing plants like you never knew possible. It really is a life changing experience to be able to look at a beautiful plant growing in a friend’s yard and realize that you can take some trimmings from it and make thousands of plants just like it.

You can buy 13 fruit trees at a nursery, or spend the same amount and learn how to take one fruit tree and turn it into hundreds or thousands. Or better yet, find some friends or neighbors who have established trees and bushes and with free cuttings, grow an orchard that will produce more organic produce than you can possibly eat in a year.

Join us in learning real useful, and money saving techniques as we go through Basic Plant Propagation!

Some of my favorite quotes:

“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”

“The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.”

“Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.”

“Employ your time in improving yourself by other men's writings so that you shall come easily by what others have labored hard for.”

“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.”

All attributed to Socrates
