One of the secrets to a great garden is what you feed it. You control the garden's diet and what you get out of it is directly related to what you put into it. Composting is going to be a key ingredient to feeding your garden, keeping the soil alive and healthy, and making sure you are reusing the stuff that is coing out of the home rather than adding it to the refuse mountains growing around the nation.
We will also discuss "Hay Bale Gardening". This is the method of using bales of straw as containers to hold and grow your plants. When I first heard about this, I thought it was just kind of a lazy urban thing that was trending, but as I continue to study and learn about it, I find it is a really great way to add to your gardening skills for a good many reasons.
We always want to have you share your gardening, or any other skills oyu have, with the listeners. You can do this by calling in to 347-308-8790 and speaking with the call screener.
Hope to see you there!
We'll talk with author Fran Sorin about the connections between gardening and creativity, and how gardening can be a creative tool for enhancing joy and well-being. Fran is the author of Digging Deep: Unearthing Your Creative Roots Through Gardening.
Join Candi and Teresa as they talk bout the basics of gardening. Teresa will be out in her garden broadcasting live. The idea of backyard gardening is nothing new, but people are finally getting back to the idea that we need to grow our own food. With GMO's and pesiticides running rampant across America people want a healthier choice in their food supply. One way is to grow your own. In the past people thought you had to have a lot of land to grow your own food.
Most families are smaller than they were a few decades ago and will be able to plant small gardens in their backyards, porches, or balconies. You can use boxes, large pots, old barrels and many other containers to grow a garden. You can also grow gardens using tubing, and water, no soil needed. Sustainable gardening is possible for everyone.
With the growing demand for organic food production, more and more people are looking at sustainable models that will produce a high yield without necessarily having to farm a large acreage. One of the most popular methods is called aquaponics. Aquaponics is the cultivation of fish and plants together in a constructed, re-circulating ecosystem utilizing natural bacterial cycles to convert fish wastes to plant nutrients. What does aquaponics gardening entail and how exactly does it work?
