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.
Do you offer discounts?
Yes, we offer 20% off discount on all SFG courses for all teachers, military veterans (with a valid ID provided) and senior citizens (with AARP card provided). Please apply here.
Will I become an SFG Certified Instructor if I buy this course bundle?
In order to become an SFG Certified Instructor it is not enough just to purchase this course bundle. You will need to pass quizzes for both Levels 1 and 2 (you can take as many times as you need). Then you will need to build a Square Foot Garden and upload photos of your Square Foot Garden on the Certified Instructor application form to demonstrate your ability to create an official SFG according to the standard method using the box, grid, Mel’s Mix™, and correct plant spacing.
