Plants become resistant to pests and diseases
Turn pests and diseases from problems into teachers that help your plants become strong. In the first year, you won't stress about them anymore, and by the third year, your plants won't either.
Better flavor and more nutrition
Commercial plant breeders have been selecting for high yields, but not flavor or nutrition. Reverse that trend by introducing diversity and selecting for bright colors and flavors.
Use less water, no fertilizer, and no sprays
Plants have an incredible ability to adapt to conditions in specific locations (over 2-3 generations). You'll learn how to develop locally adapted varieties that thrive in your unique conditions.
"For anyone that's read Joseph's book, this is a really vital next step for the practical application of the approach. The community aspect of the course and monthly calls with Joseph are so important for learning from the experience of others and being able to understand how you can introduce landrace gardening in your own garden. Thank you so much for bringing this to the world!"

"The most exciting learning in my gardening world in twenty years. I am inspired and grateful to the teachers and growers who are bringing this into more communities. The course was creatively organized and had a depth of information and abundant links and resources for further explorations. I will definitely be expanding my seed saving practice and begin experimenting with Landrace Gardening. "
