  • This is a unique opportunity for Tasmanian growers, who will form a dedicated group for their self-directed online course.
  • The Masterclass provides precise written and video instructions to give you the methodology, tools, and techniques needed to successfully grow crops and to take your market gardening to the next level.
  • As a special bonus the group will have a 60-minute Q&A with JM himself and you gain a lifetime access to the online Market Gardener community.

the sprout hub

All members receive access to our online centre for training and education, The Sprout Hub.

At the heart of the Hub is our online training courses where we have set up three areas of learning: Core Farming, Core Business, and Supplementary Learning. All Sprout members have free access to the Core Farming and Core Business courses, with the others being available to purchase.

In addition to our courses, we have included a section of resources that can be accessed for free to all members. Here you will find a host of useful information, recorded webinars, fact sheets, links and much more. 

Lastly, Sprout members have free access to our forum. This is designed to be a safe space for you to discuss topics and exchange information with peers across the food and farming sectors.
