Organic Food Growing National Initiative

"Brothers Building Gardens” is a new food-growing initiative. We will start working with gardening coaches and consultants to help them receive low-cost and FREE marketing for their businesses.

A gardening coach is a cross between a consultant, designer, and a landscaper. A gardening coach is for those gardeners who want to do their own gardening and landscaping, but need help getting started and knowing how to do specific projects.

Our gardening coaches and consultants would like to help you start your gardening projects, so decide if you would like to build raised bed gardens or grow foods in pots and containers on balconies, patios, porches, rooftops, in a kitchen or another room with grow lights.

Gardening coaches will meet their clients and customers at their homes or gardening centers to help them select their gardening tools for special projects.

If you would like to become a gardening coach or consultant and let us help you advertise, reach out to Cathy Harris, at cathy@cathyharrisinternational.com or call (512) 909-7365.

Raised Beds vs. Growing Foods in the Ground

Placing Raised Beds

Building Raised Beds


Become a 'Gardening Coach' or 'Gardening Consultant'

There are many business opportunities around growing foods so therefore, everyone needs to try to work with their own community in food-co-ops or food coalitions to set up job programs.

The group that needs this the most are former prisoners and youth that can find work during the summer. Instead of just growing foods at home, some families will be in a position to grow QUICK-GROWING foods to sell to grocery stores, farmer’s markets, restaurants, catering services, roadside stands, etc. so take advantage of these business opportunities.

Again, there will be tons of business opportunities around growing foods. You can become a Gardening Consultant” or also a Gardening Coach” and have your clients meet you at gardening centers so you can help them find the right products such as organic seeds, soils, potting mix and fertilizer, also pots, containers, and gardening tools, etc.

Or you can meet your clients and customers at their homes and build front or backyard gardens, or show them how to grow foods on patios, balconies, porches, rooftops, in kitchens, and other rooms in pots and containers by using grow lights.

Then you can come by their homes every week or two to help them maintain their 'gardening projects' or you can use your knowledge and give classes or workshops in communities, or at homes, or even virtually. The sky is the limit!

Many families will pay you for these services -- just like most single women who have homes pay $40.00 (or more) every two weeks for men to mow their lawns. They will also gladly pay you to help them maintain gardens and other food projects.

This field of Gardening Consultants” and “Gardening Coaches” would also be good for women or youth entrepreneurs, especially pre-teens and teenagers with green thumbs, since most women, especially single parents, would feel more comfortable with other women or teenagers coming around -- instead of men. Again, the sky is the limit!


Do You Have a Homeowner's Association?

When you purchase a condominium, townhouse or another type of property in a planned development such as a leased land property or a gated community, you are obligated to join that community's homeowners' association (HOA) and pay monthly or annual HOA fees for the upkeep of common areas and the building.

However, if you don't have a homeowners' association, you can grow foods in front and backyards, on balconies, patios, rooftops, porches, kitchens and other rooms with grow lights.
