Green thumbs mean many things, including the fact that someone is an avid gardener, semi-successful finger painter, or actually just a gecko in need of a lift to the next truck stop. Add some color to your opposable digits with this Groupon.

Over the course of six weeks, groups learn to plant and grow vegetables, spending the first four sessions on the sustainable methods and heirloom gardening. One session is taught by a local Dallas chef, 24 Carrot Health, who shows students how to prepare their freshly grown food, and the last session teaches food preservation to allow garden bounty that lasts through the winter.

Garden Inspirations

"Gardens are a lot like people,” Marilyn Simmons told Now Magazines. “As they grow and mature, they come into their own.” Marilyn and her daughter Donelle, owners of Garden Inspirations, have their own unique plot. “A Radio Flyer wagon is home to an assortment of flowers and trailing potato vines and an herb garden is flourishing in a nonfunctioning barbecue grill.”

At their farm, the two work to show pupils how to plant their own beds with pesticide-free veggies, which blossom into sources of personal pride. The full schedule of classes includes introductory courses on overcoming the gamut of challenges that aspiring gardeners face, such as inhospitable soil, lack of time, and accidentally planting their car keys. Knowledgeable about diverse garden types—including rooftop, field, and aquaponic—the instructors impart their wisdom on the best kind of garden for each grower’s individual needs, as well as which vegetable varieties grow most readily in North Texas and how to plant them. When not brewing compost tea or working beneath trellises tangled in emerald wisps, the crew does a radio show which talks about how to obtain baskets of naturally grown peaches, cucumbers, and squash.
