Show for July 30, 2011

We’re all natural in the garden this week! We’re talking about how to enjoy gardening this year, sources for heirloom seeds and about a very special garden that has received national attention.

Climate change may necessitate more engineered food, but that doesn’t mean the organic movement is dead just yet. Theresa Marquez of Organic Valley joins us to talk about organic farming.

What to plant, what to plant? Diane Ott Whealy talks about Seed Savers Exchange, a non-profit organization dedicated to saving and sharing heirloom seeds. Since 1975, Seed Savers members have collected and distributed thousands of samples of rare garden seeds to other gardeners.

KC Compton from The Herb Companion joins us to talk about natural remedies for seasonal allergies, and Paul talks strategies for avoiding allergies all together.

Finally, Andrea talks with master gardener Michael Weishan about a special garden he’s been working with that has a bit of history behind it.
