A conversation about organic gardening, creative watering and local food. We’ll be joined by Don Boekelheide of the Urban Ministry Center. The center has received a grant to install a cistern to help water the organic vegetable garden there. We’ll talk about how that will aid in producing more local food and the many ways this garden helps the homeless, who also work the garden. Other experts join the panel to discuss general organic gardening tips.

  1. Thanks for having us on the show, Mike. The next day, I noticed that Ira Flatow had a segment on organic gardening, too, with a long-time hero of mine, Rosalind Creasy, who pretty much invented the idea of “edible landscaping”.

    We had a very successful dedication of our cistern that afternoon, with inspiring words from Dale Mullenix, the Urban Ministry Director, Pam Ruch, and Jennifer Roberts, chair of the County Commission (Jennifer also sang a few bars of the gardener’s anthem that begins “Inch by inch, row by row, going make this garden grow…). Our gospel choir also sang, and they are a hard act to follow.

    Your shows on green topics are timely and most welcome. Thanks again, and keep up the good work.
