Are you looking for gardening classes for yourself?
Trying to figure out how to start a garden can be overwhelming. You ask yourself questions like “What do I do first?”, “How will I know what to plant?”, and “If I put time and money into a garden, will it be worth it?” Let me help you get started and take away some of the uncertainty of how to start gardening.
On the other hand, you may have been gardening for a while and found that you have a basic understanding of gardening principles, but you’re looking for more in-depth information. You may be looking for ways to make your garden more productive. The gardening classes I teach may be what you need to take your garden to the next level.
I offer monthly online gardening classes in “Growing in the Garden Academy” through Patreon
“Growing in the Garden Academy” includes a monthly live online gardening class where we cover seasonal topics. I also share what I’m planting, fertilizing, harvesting, and starting indoors (the “Low Desert To-Do List” for my garden) twice a month.
When you join “Growing in the Garden Academy” you gain access to recordings of all past classes.
Past topics include: Fall Gardening, Fall Crop Specifics, Garden Troubleshooting, Spring Garden Timeline, Companion Planting & Crop Rotation, Composting & In-Bed Vermicomposting, Soil Health & Fertilizing, Summer Gardening, Perennial Vegetables for Hot Climates, Seed Starting Basics (Indoors & Out), Monsoon Gardening, and Pest & Beneficial Insect Identification.
Each month, there is a new class with topics chosen by current members of GITG Academy.
I teach in-person classes frequently throughout the Phoenix Area
I offer in-person classes regularly throughout the Phoenix Valley. If you sign up for my monthly newsletter, I first announce my upcoming classes there. In-person gardening classes are always a lot of fun. I love answering questions and want to make sure everyone walks away learning something. We often learn from one another during class.

“I reached out to Angela Judd about teaching gardening classes for the Mesa Public Library after hearing a glowing review of her expertise from another staff member. We set up two classes – Fall Gardening in Arizona and Composting and In-Bed Vermicomposting Basics – to present to the community on two separate nights within a two-week timeframe. The night for Fall Gardening in Arizona was amazing! The library saw a full house of eager gardeners of all levels; wanting tips, tricks, and overall information on how to plant a successful garden in the fall. Angela’s presentation was abundant in advice, covering anything and everything a gardener of any caliber would need. The following week, when she presented her Composting and In-Bed Vermicomposting Basics class, the library again saw a large community of gardeners who were either currently composting and/or vermicomposting or wanting to begin and did not know how to start. Once more, the wealth of knowledge that shined through in Angela’s presentation was seen. With such high praises and a wonderful reception, I can’t wait to have her back at Mesa Public Library for even more classes!”Brianna

In-person gardening classes in the Phoenix valley
Online group gardening classes available
Online group classes are an excellent option if you don’t live in the Phoenix metropolitan area but would still like gardening classes. The classes are easy to arrange on your platform, or I can set up a class for you using CrowdCast. Live, virtual classes allow everyone to ask questions and participate in real-time.
“I reached out to Angela to teach our employees a live, virtual class on composting. Angela was responsive and willing to work with me on how I wanted the class to be done. She did a fantastic job teaching our employees about composting. She had a great deck that she put together, and was happy to answer any questions our employees had.
We recently had Angela back for another live, virtual class teaching us about container gardening and again, she was fantastic! The class was extremely informative, well thought out, and again she was happy to answer all the various questions from our employees. It’s amazing how much she knows about all things gardening! I truly cannot recommend Angela enough; she is a wonderful teacher, great to work with, and we can’t wait to partner with her again in the future!“Allston
