Grow your own food at home and enjoy it with your family

Despite feeling that you don't have enough time or space

Are your plant and veggies dying on you?

Imagine this…

It’s Sunday morning and the sun is rising. You put on the coffee and you walk outside to your small backyard to harvest today’s breakfast.

Everything is looking so fresh and there’s so many beautiful colours amongst the various vegetables and fruits you planted and cared for. You gently pick the things you need and bring them inside.

You rinse them all and then you take out your chopping board and your knife.

As you start cutting the fruits and veggies you can literally smell how good this is going to taste. And how healthy it will be, especially for your kids!

You set the table with homemade omelettes filled with fresh peppers, green onions, tomatoes, sprinkled with chives growing in a cheerful pot just outside your kitchen door. And you add a bowl of juicy berries to put on top of waffles. 

You then call out to your family “Breakfast!” and see their eyes light up at the amazing spread on the table.

You can have all that and more, such as...

  • A vibrant and thriving family food garden where you and your kids can go anytime and pick ripe, fresh veggies or fruit knowing that they have been grown with love and care
  • A delicious dinner with friends, roasting up some root vegetables with fresh herbs that you grew and telling them all about how great it is to grow food yourself
  • Biting into a delicious sandwich at work, loaded with fresh lettuce, tomato and cucumber and being the envy of all your colleagues!

Having the right help can make or break your gardening experience. Rather than waiting until your plants are dying and wasting time figuring out what to do, you can get help from a veteran who has more than 15-years of experience as a food grower.

Thoma family
Raised bed with Lettuce

Hi there, I’m Marc - Your Seed To Table Guide

I’m also a husband, a father and the food grower for my family.

My garden is a mix of raised beds, fruit trees and containers and I grow everything edible from veggies, fruit to herbs and even edible flowers on about 1/8 acre. With 15+ years of experience growing many different kinds of fruit and veggies and herbs, I have experienced the good and the bad. I’ve weathered pest problems, diseases, weather and racoons! I’ve struggled with time management and lack of space and sun. I’ve been through it all so you don’t have to! I’m a natural problem solver and love helping others achieve what I’ve been able to achieve.

As a published author of a book on urban gardening for beginners, I love breaking down complex topics into simple, easy-to-understand steps anyone can follow, the main reason the publisher reached out to me to write the book.

One of my clients wrote:

“Marc Thoma is a fantastic resource and garden guru! He’s helped me get started and I’m a total newbie. No judgement (which I’ve felt in at least 2 garden centers), just support and advice I can actually follow. I’m excited to see the plants in my new raised garden bed thriving!” – Tammy

And that’s key. I’ve heard from so many beginners of getting the wrong information from nurseries and garden centre staff, either because they don’t really know the right answer or are trying to sell you a cartload of plants and supplies! I don’t want that to happen to you. I created this membership as my life’s mission to help other families experience the same amazing benefits of growing food at home. I am here to serve you to the best of my ability, especially with getting rid of overwhelm and lessening the struggle.

Still not sure if Seed To Table is right for you?

We both know that you can find a lot of content on the internet these days. A simple google search for “how to grow food at home” gives you 1,060,000,000 hits… So let me instead ask you… Where do you even start with all this info available? How much time are you willing to invest in research, time better spent actually growing food? And how can you trust what you’ll find on a random website will work? You’ve perhaps seen those “amazing” videos that have been proven to just be camera trickery.

While there is some really good free advice out there, there is also a lot of really bad advice. Advice that could turn your dream into a nightmare!

And you know what happens when you search for something online: “Oh, look squirrel” and you’re in a rabbit hole, only coming out after an hour with your problem still not solved!

Instead you could get advice that is timely, accurate, free from distraction and eliminates the guesswork over “what search result should I click on”.

With Seed To Table you don’t have to spend hours on research, you’ll know exactly how to start and you can trust that I’ve been through it all, so all you have to do is ask and you’ll get help from me. 

Courses are usually designed to teach a technique from beginning to end. But growing food is very seasonal and it’s different for everyone based on location, climate, growing food indoors VS outdoors, etc. And also the challenges are very different and you often have to deal with them quickly in order to save your plants if something happens to them.

Here’s the thing, when you pay for something, you pay attention. Or “the transformation is in the transaction”. How often have you received something for free and didn’t value it? When you pay for advice, guidance and learning, you’re investing in your future and your family’s future and will take it more seriously.

Members in Seed to Table have made the monthly or yearly commitment to make a positive impact on their family’s life by being successful in growing food at home.

I have helped everyone from beginners to intermediate food growers, regardless of where they’re growing food. We have members with large backyards, small backyards, apartment balconies and even just a sunny windowsill indoors. 

And with my many years of experience working as a computer consultant and trainer, I’ve become quite good at choosing the right words and approaches to teaching, regardless of the topic or the knowledge level of my “student”.

Currently I don’t offer a free trial, however if for any reason you feel the membership is not meeting your needs you can request a full refund within the first 30 days.

No, the refund period is only for the first 30 days when you first sign up. The purpose of the annual membership is to save you two months worth of membership fees. It’s designed for families who are committed to getting the help they need with their homegrown food journey. I recommend you try a month or two first and then sign up for the annual membership. And at any time during your membership term you can reach out to me if you’re struggling with finding enough value in the membership – you may just need to be pointed in the right direction.

Also note that as an annual subscriber you’ll also get the Veggie Starter Kit mailed to you every fall. As there is some lead-time needed to put the box together for every annual subscriber, that’s another reason I can’t provide a refund halfway through your annual term.

While I understand for some the monthly fee is a burden and simply doesn’t fit into their budget, I’m not able to offer any free memberships to be fair to everyone. 

Have a look at what else you’re paying for on a monthly basis that you might not be using. And keep in mind that once you start growing food successfully, you can save much more than the membership fee on grocery store visits, especially if you’re trying to only buy organic. Plus what price can you put on your family’s health?

Except what happens when you lose that $230 you invested in plants because you don’t know how to take care of them? Just one tip or piece of advice that you get from the membership could save your plants and your money. And you may not need to spend so much money at the nursery – there’s lots of ways to save money on supplies and tools so that you can instead invest in your education and learning.

New memberships come with a 30-day refund guarantee. If for some reason you are not happy with the help you’ve received in the first month, you can request a refund within 30 days of signing up. And you can cancel the recurring payments anytime if you’re on a monthly plan.

Please email me at marc@tranquilurbanhomestead.com with your question and I’d be happy to answer it.

You lock in the price you pay initially even if the price were to go up so long as you maintain your membership without a break.

And that’s important. As content on the site increases month over month, so will the price as there will be much more value.

And why wait until your plants are dying because you didn’t know how to care for them? Or miss that one thing that will make a big difference in having a successful year or not.

All you need to do is choose your plan to register.
