Welcome to the Beginner's Garden Podcast! This is the podcast with easy-to-understand resources, tips, and information to help beginning gardeners get the most out of their gardening adventure -- big or small. When I began gardening in 2013, I scoured books and Internet resources to find all the information I could. Although good information was abundant, I had trouble understanding all the gardening lingo and sifting through the information to figure out what would work for me. In this podcast, my aim is to provide helpful information while explaining the gardening lingo as we go. I want to equip YOU to have the best start ever this gardening season!

    Organic REV
    The first thing to understand about REV is that it is not an ordinary humic acid product that is chemically-extracted from leonardite, lignite, or other coals. Rather, it is a 100% naturally-occurring carbon, humic acid & fulvic acid source - along with exceptionally high levels of naturally-occurring microbial biomass that can increase nitrogen efficiency by up to 25%.
    REV replaces depleted soil carbon & bacterial biomass - and absorbs nutrients to make them more readily available to plants via their root systems.

My favorite podcast

I’ve been gardening on a small scale for over 20 years—containers, in ground, and raised beds. I love listening to Jill’s podcast because she breaks things down in such a simple, doable way. I always learn something new.

Great podcast.

I have learned so much and I enjoy many of the topics on the podcast. Worth a listen! I just skip the last few minutes of the show where she starts talking about religion. Simple as that!

I’ve learned so much

I look forward every week to Jill’s new podcast. As a beginner who has longed to succeed, I have learned so much from her. She shares freely of her experiments and lessons learned in the garden. Even though she is far more skilled and advanced, I can relate to her on my level. When I finish listening, I always end feeling encouraged.
