December’s Garden Club Class:

Sourdough Breadmaking

The process of making sourdough bread may seem daunting at first, but it’s a deeply rewarding journey that connects us to time-honored techniques and the heartwarming simplicity of ingredients: flour, water, salt, and the magic of fermentation. In this guide, we’ll take you through the fascinating world of sourdough breadmaking, from creating and maintaining a sourdough starter to shaping, baking, and savoring your own delicious loaves.

Build your capacity to grow food and have a ridiculously good time while doing it!

Learn the foundations of regenerative gardening and land based living, in community, with year-round support

It’s time to finally say YES to starting your own garden.

“When you learn to tend a garden, it also nourishes you. There is no substitute for hyper local food grown by you and for you. To know how to sow and save seeds, tend to the soil, and sync with the cycles and rhythms of nature should be an essential skill understood by everyone.”


The Garden Club is a hope-filled, 3-week course PLUS ongoing monthly journey, full of resources and live sessions where you’ll learn how to garden & why it matters with expert guidance and community support.

In addition to the course content, you’ll get access to live sessions with Q&A and a vibrant community of fellow gardeners to enjoy the journey with, through the seasons, year round.

We created The Garden Club so you can see, feel, touch and taste the connection that exists between story and soil in your daily life.

This course is more than a “how-to” tutorial. It will inspire you to think deeper about how you connect with the land, develop food security, ensure your diet consists of the most nutrient dense food, and create impact within your own body, home, family, community, and far beyond.

Meet Your Guide


Greg Reese is a Southern California agrarian with a passion for growing regenerative, organic food by building healthy soils and biodiverse landscapes. With a background in rainwater harvesting, native landscapes, orchard care, and no-till market gardens, Greg uses his decade of experience to create localized food systems, educate people on regenerative garden implementation, and inspire a life of land-based living.

Greg is founder of 1000 Tiny Farms, which works to cultivate a regional network of market gardens to explore the social, environmental, and economic impacts of a small patch of land and the sharing of resources between farmers. By joining this course and growing food, your garden can be 1 of 1,000 tiny gardens working to accelerate the movement toward creating communities where people aren’t only sharing resources, but knowledge and culture too.

It’s time to finally say YES to starting your own garden – whether you have access to a few containers, community garden plot, or a backyard – your future garden is calling for you.
