Hi my name is Mike Kaplin and I have been gardening for most of my life. I have been sharing my experience, wisdom and passion for over 20 years with students from all around the world. I am the founder and director of The Center for Creative Ecology in Kibbutz Lotan, Israel. The Kibbutz is in the hot desert of Israel, one of the most inhospitable places in the world. If I can grow a green wonderland here, then you can definitely grow your own food anywhere. My superpower is that I teach everything in a simple and straightforward manner and empower people like YOU to grow your own veggies.

You see, I believe each one of us can grow our own food. I take away the fear and replace it with confidence and knowledge. I truly feel that NOW has never been a better time to learn how to sustain ourselves, become healthier and enjoy tasty organic food. I share EVERYTHING I have learned over the years from creating gold (compost), sourcing plants and seeds, boosting growth rates, repelling insects naturally and how and when to harvest. It’s my passion to see you create a thriving garden and enjoy the results.

Did You Know ?​

That tomatoes are one of the most heavily sprayed veggies on the planet? 

Why not grow your own?

Did you know that pesticides are linked to lowered fertility, cancer and other diseases and that children are especially susceptible to their actions? Why would you even THINK of putting commercial fruits and veggies in your mouth?


Is this your experience?

You go to the supermarket and the veggies look terrible. They even smell chemical and you remember the carrots that you bought from here last week. 

They tasted…well…of nothing actually.

Those organic carrots you ate a month ago at your friend’s house was just divine. You would love to start growing your own veggies but you don’t know where to start!

There has never been a better time to learn organic gardening.

 Times are changing and we need to get back to our 'roots' and grow our own food.
Do you honestly want to eat an industrial tomato or a juicy organic one?
Do you really want to eat a watery carrot or one bursting with flavor?
