Helen Atthowe's Garden Master Course

35 hours of quality instruction on better-than-organic garden practices.  

Most Master Gardener courses offer extensive botanical and cultivation information, which is great!   But they also teach that you must use all the bottles and sprayers containing nasty stuff and covered with warning labels, which is not so great - for the gardener or the garden.  

There has never been a course taught through an ecological lens . . .

                    . . . Until now.

In the Garden Master Course, we have taken the very best of the Advanced Master Gardener curriculum and improved upon it.  We have employed biological and ecosystemic methods to eliminate the need for conventional (or even certified organic) pesticides and herbicides.  Gardening for the future!

After years of planning, Helen Atthowe came to Wheaton Labs to teach what I now call "The Certified Garden Master Course."  The class sells out every year.  Demand keeps growing.  So last year we set up some high-quality cameras to see if we could gather the footage to make this class available to more people.

About your instructor:

Helen Atthowe has taught Master Gardener courses for 17 years. Having  studied under Fukuoka Helen has spent the last 35 years learning how to pay close attention to the land.  She applies Fukuoka's farming principles to her commercial organic farms, while also adding and developing her own ecological farming practices. She has hands on experience managing a 2,000-acre organic commodity farm as well as growing permaculture food forests.

Helen has a bachelor's degree in agro-ecology, a master's degree in horticulture, and is working on a doctorate in entomology on how reduced-tillage affects beneficial organism populations and crop biological control. Paul and Helen have recorded numerous podcasts together, and they are among Paul's most popular podcasts.

What the Garden Master Course covers:

Unit 1: Getting Started: How everything is connected

Unit 2: The Roots of a Healthy Plant Community: Understanding soil structure and ecology

Unit 3: Strengthening Your Garden: Managing beneficial insects, pests, and disease

Unit 4: Weeds vs. Garden: Working with plant competition in the farm/garden system

Unit 5: Growing a Diet: Planting, pruning and rotating for long-term success
