Mel says,"So the question isn’t really, “Why do you want to be part of something so positive and world-changing and purely wonderful as SFG?” The question really is, “Why wouldn’t you?” And, of course, there’s just no good answer to that particular question. I hope you’ll join me in making this a better world through SFG because that’s our mission and that’s the best possible reason for becoming an SFG Certified Instructor." Read More

    Anyone who wants to share SFG should take this course. The Foundation has teaching resources available for the CIs so you can hit the floor running. I also enjoyed meeting the other students online as a group and sharing ideas and solutions.

    Amie and Belinda are very good teachers on the SFG method. I feel even more competent now that I have completed the course. I highly recommend the course to anyone interested in having successful gardens and wanting to tell others about it.

    So glad I took this course!

    Posted by Elena Donovan, SFG Instructor on 4th Mar 2014

    I'm thrilled they offered this SFG Instructor Certification Course online! We had enthusiastic, supportive, and very knowledgeable instructors. How exciting it was to take this course with students from all over the states AND world. Sitting in this online class knowing that Mel's dream is being taught all over the world and sharing this with classmates from Amsterdam, China, and the UK was an awesome feeling. Reading Mel Bartholomew's book, working live online together through the study guide, preparing presentations, and being able to ask and share questions and ideas certainly helped with building our knowledge base and confidence. Thank-you so much for this opportunity to become a SFG instructor. Now I too, can help others learn this simple and pleasant way to garden!
