Frequently Asked Questions

Is it a self-paced course?

Yes. Once you are enrolled in the course, you can start learning at your own pace.

How long do I have access to the purchased courses?

You will get lifetime access. When you purchase the courses, regardless of price, you will receive any updates to the courses as they are updated.

Do you have a list of materials that I will need for this course?

We don't have a list of required products to build the Square Foot Garden, because it is very individual. Some people prefer building SFG beds from recycled materials, some people buy wood to build the SFG bed. In the course, we give basic recommendations and a list of materials that anyone can use to build the SFG bed.

Also, you will need the soil components to create your Mel's Mix: vermiculite, compost and peat moss. We explain in the course how to do it.
