I write the edible landscaping e-newsletter for the National Gardening Association and have my own consulting business coaching gardeners to learn how to grow food in their yards efficiently and beautifully. I do a lot of public speaking to Master Gardener groups and flower shows around the country about edible landscaping. Check out my website (charlienardozzi.com) for more details and ways to contact me.

Please note: This listing is provided as a free service to edible landscaping companies. I do not have information on pricing or other details. To receive this information, please contact the company directly -- their contact information appears below. Thank you!

My wife and I live on 5 acres just south of Burlington, Vermont on new land that we are developing into edible gardens and a place for teaching about gardening.

What's a Garden Coach?

A coach is a cross between a consultant, designer, and a landscaper.

A designer will give you ideas and plans, but won't do the work.

A landscaper will come in and do the work, but won't teach you how.

A coach is the best of both worlds. I'll come in and offer design and plant selection ideas and maintenance tips. Then I'll come back and actually work with you to perform some of the tasks.

A garden coach is for those gardeners who want to do their own gardening and landscaping, but need help getting started and knowing how to do specific projects.

I'm comfortable working with absolute beginners to knowledgeable Master Gardeners. While I can teach you to do many tasks in the garden, I don't do construction or large scale landscaping projects, architectural or formal landscape designs, or building projects. However, I can recommend people who can do those things.


"We're enthusiastic beginner gardeners with too little time.

Charlie offered great ideas and knowledgeable answers to all of our questions. He gave just the right amount of information to be comprehensive without being overwhelming. Among other things, Charlie offered great ideas to simplify efforts in the vegetable garden, had trouble shooting tips for pests in the flower gardens, and helped
de-mystify the how-to's of wintering roses. His knowledge was incredibly helpful, and his genuine encouragement was motivating." Heather, South Burlington, VT

"As a novice gardener and first time homeowner attempting to start my first vegetable bed, I enlisted Charlie to be my guide, coach, and motivator. His expertise, knowledge, patience, and easy-going good nature was truly the perfect recipe for getting me motivated to not only start
my garden right, but to continue to see it through. His passion for gardening is simply infectious. Thank you Charlie!" Jarrett, Essex Junction, VT

You were outstanding. You know so much and have a very easy personal style. It was time and money very well spent. Thank you! James, Duxbury, VT
