You're an aspiring or experienced gardener who is ready to make a major shift by growing fresh food indoors
 that is free of pesticides, because you know it’s best for you. You want to be able to harvest all-year-round, indoors and maybe even out, regardless of the weather, and understand you need to produce your own seedlings and healthy plants to do so.

Whether you...

  • feel so overwhelmed by the number of indoor garden options,

  • are scared of making all the mistakes in the book once you start growing food.

  • have tried doing indoor gardening, it failed and now you feel like you’re a plant killer. You don’t know what you did wrong and have no idea how to fix the problems.

  • want your kids to know where their food comes from and would love to have a fun, educational activity with your family.

  • are dreaming of having some gardening therapy in your life.

  • wish there was an easy-to-follow path to grow an abundance of food successfully.

You're in the right place, and I'm going to tell you how Indoor Gardening Academy is going to give you the tools, proven pathway, confidence and continuous support you need on your journey to become an all-year-round gardener that will impact other  neighbours, family and friends.

By the end of this program, you will have...

Designed, built and installed the best indoor garden
for your needs, space and budget so that you do not waste money on the wrong piece of equipment, you maximise your production of food in a compact space and you can scale up your indoor garden if your needs change over the years.

Designed your own all-year-round planting calendar
so you can plant and harvest way outside the typical gardening seasons and have it tailored to your gardening goals and your family's needs.

Selected your seeds for the entire year

Before I met Hélène, I felt a little bored and lost. I didn't know exactly what to do with my first garden. There's so much information on the internet, I felt lost. It's like you are my mentor Hélène. Your instructions are simple in French and in English. You made gardening much, much easier for me. Now, I have 4 different gardens: one indoor, one on the balcony, one on the ground and one is a raised bed. They are small but productive.

I was never certain about how to proceed before I took IGA,. I thought my new found hobby might not fit with our plans for the back yard. What I liked the most was the clear and complete information on various aspects. The handouts were excellent. I feel much more confident now. I had never done much in the way of growing seedlings. Since taking this course, I have been successful with many varieties/vegetables.

I was a very enthusiastic but not very skilled gardener, and I put a lot of hours to trying to make things grow both inside and out with very little success. I find that Hélène is a very organized and clear teacher. The material that she presents is very relevant to my needs and experience. She is very responsive to the questions from students, and she goes the extra mile to find a detailed response. She takes the time to really research the topic. I’m having much more success with my vegetable growing attempts. I’m grateful that I have resources to access to answer questions that come up. I’m able to access her and I’m very grateful for that.

We loved the interactions with other gardeners on the journey and Helene's very genuine passion for the subject which came across every time her hands touched the soil or she smelled and nibbled on a fresh herb while doing her demonstrations. So hands on despite being at a distance! Like my plants, I'm growing every day! I'm less intimidated by occasional gardening errors. I even revived a few plants that looked like they were on their last legs by using Helene's tips and tricks. Within days we were all on an upward curve again. We are entering spring and the outdoor planting season with at least 100 plants, herbs and seedlings ready to go into the earth! I mean, what?? This is insane! And that doesn't include the seeds we will direct sow!

Before the course I previously did plant a small summer garden outdoors but purchased my plants from a garden nursery. I did try planting from seed indoors before the course but my success rate wasn't great and my plants were usually too thin and toppled over use. The idea of being able to start my own seedlings indoors really appealed to me and also to have some plants (especially herbs) indoors all-year-round was exciting!! I really enjoyed Helene's teaching technique of one session of teaching a topic following by a separate session of a live Q&A. I believe the group gained so much during the Q&A. I feel more confident about being able to produce seedlings and plant them outdoors. I also feel I have the knowledge to troubleshoot some of the problems that happen

Before taking Indoor Gardening Academy, I had spent one season working for a market gardener, a few years working on vegetable gardens and did ecological landscaping for 9 years. I took this course to give me theoretical and practical tools to allow me to set up an indoor gardening system. What I liked the most was the clarity, simplicity and organization that allows you to get started while following the program. It demystifies the questions and allows you to take action! Now I feel more confident! I am willing to do trial and error. I have about ten trays filled with plants and I feel launched to continue the experience year-after-year. Thank you very much Hélène for sharing your passion with such enthusiasm and generosity!
