Hi I'm Rick Stone and I want to teach you how to get your garden started this season!


Welcome to the Get Your Garden Planted Challenge

This fun challenge is meant to teach you how to grow your own fresh organic food. 

The challenge will include a daily 30 minute lesson and includes a workbook for each day and an assignment for you to complete.

What is the Plant Your Garden Challenge?


This challenge is designed to teach you some great gardening basics and to give you the inspiration to get out and get a garden planted this year! The challenge will include 5 days of instruction. Nothing too intense. Each day there will be a 30 to 35-minute class to teach you a little more about gardening. And each day there will be an assignment or task for you to complete.

On day 6 I will do a live Q&A session with the group where you can ask your questions and get a wrap-up of everything we have covered. There is also a great workbook to go along with each day and we will have a drawing for a few prizes.

Check out the list below to see what topics we will be highlighting each day of the challenge!

This course is closed for enrollment.

Who is Rick Stone?


Hi guys, I'm Rick Stone and I’m a gardening fanatic! Over the last 25 years I've grown a large garden at my home and it seems like every year that garden gets a little larger! Most years we grow between 800 to 1100 pounds of fresh veggies for our table and tons of great flowers to make our yard look awesome. I grow all of my own seedlings and we have learned how to extend our garden harvest to 365 days a year. Even in our zone 6 garden! Growing in cold frames and hoop houses is the key!! I'm a graduate of the Utah State University Master Gardener program and have been teaching classes for many years on gardening basics and year round gardening. For the last 6 years I have been teaching courses online to nearly 5000 students. Come join me and we will learn everything you need to know to have a successful garden!!
