I have been passionately gardening for over 20 years.  I am a master gardener, certified in permaculture and teaching permaculture, and have a master's degree in Regenerative Entrepreneurship. I developed the Green Thumb course to earn money while I started a family.  I wanted something that was flexible, rewarding, and profitable.  It works so well I want to share it with you!

Anda Saylor

The Green Thumb Teacher's Guide and Manual has been amazing! After my first year of teaching, my students have given me great positive feedback. For each class I was prepared with a hand out, teachers notes and a list of supplies I would need to set everyone up for success, including myself! The conversational format of the curriculum made classes full of community and sharing. I learned along with my students about the areas that I had less experience, and was able to add my own special touches and perspectives easily. Knowing how much experience, knowledge and thoughtful review has gone into developing this curriculum, I felt confident that what I was sharing was of lasting value.

I invested in the Green Thumb Teacher Manual because I know Saskia teaches amazing classes. I took the class from her a few years back and I learned a ton. This curriculum has lived up to my expectations. I'm now teaching my own classes! Anyone with a decent understanding will benefit from having a course already planned out for them, without having to do all the grunt work. I love it!
