Summary
Marjory Wildcraft is often referred to as "The Martha Stewart of Self-Reliance". She had a revelation a while ago when she found out that there wasn't enough local food being grown in her area to provide veggies for one single small elementary school. This realization caused her to completely change her life and career. She is now dedicated to teaching people how to grow their own food, heal themselves with their own medicines, and prepare for collapse.
Her most popular resource is this 2 DVD set about how to Grow Your Own Groceries and they have been a hit all over the world.

OK ... So thinking these might be very useful for volunteers and interns, not to mention offering the possibility of picking up some useful tips myself, I resisted my knee-jerk reaction against the high pressure sales spiel, clicked the link, paid for the digital versions and received a receipt and a link and login to the growyourowngroceries.com website. But now I'm logged in, there's no sign of where to access these products apart from pages inviting me to buy them. The welcome email asks me to contact the customer service team if I have any problems, but there's no contact information anywhere I can see apart from a physical postal address.

Am I just being extraordinarily thick and not getting the way this website works? Or ...? Has anyone else purchased the digital versions and found the way to access them?

'Premiums' wasn't there. So I closed the page and tried again from the email link whereupon it appeared. Now I don't have all the bonuses listed ... sigh ... but at least I found the tiny little email icon in the top right hand corner to get in touch with them. Thanks for your help @Kyrt!

If you found your way to the Grow Your Own Groceries videos, just under the video screen is a link 'Click Here To Access The Bonus Content Here' [Yes it uses 'Here' twice.]

Clicking that reveals TONS of bonus stuff.

Thanks again! I was just trying to puzzle this out as the links to Home Medicine 101 and Seed Saving in my Premiums menu both give a 404. And it turns out the email icon is a newsletter signup ... I'll file a suggestion for adding this information to the welcome email.

Huh, you're right the Home Medicine and Seed Saving material does seem unavailable.

Good luck seeking support.

EDIT: you said you didn't know how to contact them. There's a Helpdesk Menu Item in the same menu as Premiums.

I give this DVD set 7 out of 10 acorns.

I have watched the first DVD only, I had no time to access bonus materials yet.

The first DVD is titled "Grow your own groceries" and contains a brief summary of author's knowledge on this topic - from growing veggies to skinning rabbits. To be honest I was expecting more detailed guide, and more universal, more applicable for other situations (location/climate).

But apart from that this DVD contains a lot of useful hints on how to integrate plant and animal production in order to maintain garden fertility as well as to get enough meat production. It is very practical approach that can be applied by novice homesteaders.

I'm not convinced that as ad for this DVD says, after watching it, in less than 1 hour a day one will be able to grow a lot of healthy food in own backyard. Certainly not if you are a beginner and not in my climate, but on te other hand it is a good way to start. As the author, Marjory Wildcraft says "Growing your own food does take some time to master." And this is very true.

7.5 out of 10 acorns. This is a good demonstration of how one person can get half of their food in a backyard type area. The techniques are specific to her situation, but many of her concepts can be applied to any situation. Integrating small livestock with multiple functions and utilizing some of your growing areas for animal feed production come to mind. I think this DVD set could be very useful to beginning homesteader/prepper types.
