Meet Nina, Garden Girl

Peaceful mornings on the farm mixed with a little (or a lot of..?) Colombian sass - I am the overexcited mom cheering you on in your gardening journey. My days are mostly spent hanging with my little girl, River, but when I put my business hat on.. you better watch out. I'll either start convincing you to raise chickens or planting spinach in your landscaping beds.

What makes The Dirt Academy Excellent

All About Details

Even though I've been growing and developing my business for years, I am still in the details personally. From writing the online course scripts to designing my client's installations, I believe my attention to detail sets me apart. 

Stay Connected

All of my online course students have direct access to me through the private Facebook group to ask questions, my installation clients get my cell phone number, and my consultation clients receive 1-on-1 care and attention. 

Experience Speaks

Throughout the years, I graduated with a degree in Organic Agriculture, worked on five organic farms across the country, taught thousands of people online, and have built countless installations. Seasonal planting and harvesting is part of my intuition and lifestyle.
