Free Training Session


Join us for FREE training sessions, where Backyard Riches members meet up to share their trials and triumphs. These are the pioneers and practical thinkers who are turning their gardens into cash machines.

They discuss the best ways urban and suburban growers can make money growing food, without having to take on the burdens of owning lots of land, investing piles of money and making a big lifestyle change. You don’t have to! Whether you want to earn some quick cash to fund a vacation, or start a whole new career, join in our free training sessions to learn from those who are doing it every day:

  • How to layout your garden to maximize yields
  • Which high-value crops to grow (man does not live by micros alone!)
  • What kind of equipment is worth investing in
  • How to manage your time efficiently to get it all done
  • How to identify the best markets, how to set prices and package your produce
  • How to sell effectively
  • How to expand your business without  expanding your workforce or growing space


Courtney Tchida, farm manager, Cornercopia Organic Student Farm

Courtney’s got an app for everything except labor, and she puts her student work force at Cornercopia Student Organic Farm to good use. Almost 6 acres, pumping out 48 weeks of 130 different veggies in Minnesota. Courtney knows how to produce, and you’ll hear how she does it in this crop-focused session. What’s driving her, besides having to supply 3 major sales channels is the encouragement she gets every day from the students who are learning not only where food comes from, but the real skill and cost it takes to produce it. So she’s schooling our future customers well. A cornercopia of experience is stuffed into this meetup.  Hear about converting clover pathways to beds, undercutter bars, seed saving and lots more.

Seed to Cash enables you to earn a living on land you don't own. I grossed enough to replace a full time job in my first year, with no prior growing experience.
