This radio show is owned and produced by MKEGreenworks LLC, a premiere design/build garden construction firm located just North of Metro Milwaukee along the shores of Lake Michigan. I been involved in the green industry since the age of 13 when I began working for a friend of the family who had a small nursery and design/build garden construction company. Fast forward 45+ years, after a degree in Landscape Architecture and operating our own design/build garden construction company for the past 25 years and I think I have more questions than answers. As the old saying goes, the more you know, the more you realize you have to learn. Gardening encompasses such a wide variety of specialties that one person cannot be an expert in all of the fields. My father's sarcastic definition of an expert is, for someone that comes from more than 25 miles away. He also said if someone ever says there is only one way to do things, pack your bags and run in the opposite direction. And my curiosity is probably a gift from my father who would take us to different factories when we would take vacations so we could see how things were made. That was back when liability issues were not such a big deal I guess. My gift of gab is from my mother who could talk to anyone. She would go skiing with us, but preferred to sit in the lodge and read a book and during lunch she could tell us about everyone that was sitting around us. I miss her......... On overthehedgerow we will be talking about all things green which includes visits to and interviews with a wide variety of interesting people from all walks of the green industry and beyond. We may also occasionally talk about our other passions such as sailing, biking and great dining. So stop and listen or better yet stop by and call and share your thoughts on all things green.....
