Garden or Farm Consult
There are two main types of garden consults available but there is lots of flexibility
Over the phone or computer consult.. Got a certain issue that you want to talk about.. you can send me photos, or a short video to watch for the area? You can do follow-up in the same way..
Great! I am open to giving a helping hand in this way across your gardening or small farm needs.
Price $50 an hour (with one full follow-up written report of what I am recommending) and two short, five to ten minute follows if needed to tweak idea’s and make sure you have great success!
Repeat clients get a discount at 40 per hour.
This is available across Canada by phone and by Facebook/Skype across N.A.
Close enough to have me come in person? I would love to give you my thoughts and help you create a successful plan to move things forward in a successful way that meets your goals, your dreams and your needs!
1 or 2 hour consults available within an hour of the farm. $100 dollars per hour, includes travel costs and a follow-up report and up to 3 10 to 15 minutes follow ups as needed by phone, Facebook or email.
Half Day consults
Morning or Afternoon
3 hours $200 per half day including travel costs (within a hour of the farm) and Follow up report and up to 3 10 to 15 minute Follow ups as needed by phone, Facebook or email.
Because Travel time adds up fast, I do give a discount in regards to the longer Half Day Consults. While it allows us to cover more subject matters and allows us to have a more relaxed pace that can work better for retaining more information.
You are welcome combine two half days if you really want to go over a number of things on your garden/farm in combo. Max amount of hours is 6 hours with at least a hour’s break for me to recoup/relax and just visit over a lunch 🙂
I will travel further then a hour from the farm but I will need to look at and figure out travel costs. Full amount will be shared when hired so there is no Surprises at all
All prices are in Canadian dollars.
Photos and Notes are highly recommended but video taping me while talking is NOT allowed without express permission given for personal use only!
