    The Garden Conservancy.....a conversation with

    in Hobbies

    Have you ever wondered what was behind that garden wall or enjoyed wandering through outstanding public gardens?  We are excited to have Laura Palmer from The Garden Conservancy as a guest on our broadcast as we enjoy an indepth conversation about all the facets of The Garden Conservancy.


    The Garden Conservancy was established in 1989 and has enjoyed continued interest and growth supporting the preservation and maintenance of gardens which started out primarily as private gardens and can now be enjoyed by the general public.  


    Open Days are also a key component of their wide array of programs which allows the general public to enjoy outstanding private gardens throughout the country for a very reasonable cost.  I had the pleasure of attending one of these Open Day gardens here in southeast Wisconsin a couple of years ago and my wife and I loved wandering through an absolutely exquisite garden just a stones throw from Lake Michigan


    I invite you listen live to the broadcast as we continue to share our passion for all things gardening.

    Ultimate Play Day

    in Moms and Family

    The Ultimate Play Day is a day long celebration focused on the idea that play is a crucial aspect of everyone’s life. Hosted by the Playful Pittsburgh Collaborative, the Ultimate Play Day is an opportunity for the Pittsburgh community to come together in a centralized location to engage in and learn about play. This year, local and regional organizations will host play stations throughout Burgwin Park to provide a holistic model of innovative and creative play. The event will feature outdoor play, an opportunity to create with natural materials such as small logs, rocks, & acorns, games made from recycled material, art, the imagination playground, story telling sessions, hula hoop play, and drum circles. There will be play for every age—from the very young to the most seasoned!

    This celebration will also introduce community members to playful organizations such as The Carnegie Museum of Art, The Saturday Light Brigade, Kids Plus Pediatrics, PAEYC, Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy, and many more! Our hope is that this event will spark conversations regarding other play-based topics including, play and learning, risk and play, nature play, and play through design.

    Join me as I speak with Cara Ciminillo to chat about this exciting event!
