    Learn about Straw Bale Gardening with My Guest, Author Joel Karnsten

    in Prepping

    I had the honor of interviewing Joel and leaving tremendously encouraged about this method of gardening. As I think and prepare for my elderly years, gardening is not something I am willing to give up simply due to physical limitations and straw bale gardening sounds just like the ticket to keep at it! It is not only for the 'seasoned' gardener, as Joel puts it, but it is great for so many other circumstances and living environments.


    He is going to be one of the speakers you can learn from FOR FREE at the Home Grown Food Summit! (bit.ly/HomeGrownFoodSummit) But you'll want to register SOON . You'll see several people with whom you are likely familiar.

    New Roses for 2015 - David Austin Roses

    in Gardening

    For Spring 2015, David Austin introduces four new English Roses to U.S. and Canadian gardeners. All four feature classic Austin rose attributes – a romantic old-fashioned flower form, heady fragrance and masses of blooms all season long. Michael Marriott is our guest on today's broadcast. He's the chief rosarian at David Austin roses and we'll be chatting about this exceptional collection of roses. 


    “We expect gardeners will be excited by these appealing English Roses,” says Austin’s senior rosarian Michael Marriott. “Each has irresistible qualities, the kind that lead gardeners to discover they have ‘just the spot’ for this!”


    Available by mail order from www.davidaustinroses.com,


    ‘The Lady Gardener’ – This is an intensely fragrant, apricot-colored rose that’s astoundingly floriferous, nearly burying itself in perfume and flowers from early summer to frost and has added it to their list of Most Fragrant English Roses.


    The Albrighton Rambler’ – Typically a rambler rose delivers a spectacular show, but blooms only once a season. ‘The Albrighton Rambler’ blooms repeatedly all season long. 


    Thomas à Becket’ – Whereas Austin’s roses often recall an Old Rose in look, this rose is closer to a species rose, being more natural and shrubby in growth. The large red flowers are shallowly cupped, opening as informal rosettes, with petals that quickly reflex as the flowers age. 


    Maid Marion’ – This 2015 North American introduction has everything gardeners prize in David Austin's English Roses. The buds open in rounded cups with large outside petals.

    Herbs That Heal

    in Environment

    All chefs know that the secret to good food is fresh herbs. Whether you are a chef or just someone who appreciates the flavor of fresh, organic herbs, having an herb garden is becoming an essential part of every home environment. In addition to culinary uses, herbs are also grown for a myriad of reasons such as natural remedies, fragrance, beauty, to dye textiles, for attracting pollinators and even to repel other insects. Some herbs are even grown for spiritual ceremonies and rituals. While there are many uses for herbs, growing your own herbs is something that everyone should incorporate into their home environment. It is economic, good for the environment and good for your health! Tammi Hartung, author of Homegrown Herbs- A Complete Guide To Growing, Using and Enjoying More than 100 Herbs, will share her stories and inspirational guidelines for growing and using herbs as a part of ones daily lifestyle. She will discuss ways to garden on the windowsill during cold seasons and outdoors in the garden the rest of the year. She will describe ways to cook with herbs, how to prepare them for a proper cup of tea and how to use them in the bath. Tune in to this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer talks to Herbal Goddess, Tammi Hartung.


    Today’s show is sponsored by Austria’s Finest Naturally Authentic Pumpkin Seeds and Pumpkin Seed Oil from the Steiermark available at OrganicUniverse.com.

    power of perception with Jimmy Packers

    in Spirituality

    Jimmy is a unique artist with over 20 years in the music industry. He has worked with such artists as Zebra, the Good Rats, Steve Morse, Robin Trower, Blackfoot, Wendy O. Williams, Loudness, Queensryche and producers Nile Rogers and Tom Werman.
    Don't bother looking for a pigeonhole into which Jimmy Packes will fit. He just lives to rock and he rocks out how he wants. Which means he gets heavy with hard rock and metal, lays out the soulful blues grooves and just keeps it real with honest, straight up rock-and-roll energy. Packes packs a sound that sucker punches you in the gut and leaves you bleeding and begging for more.
    Packes has been courted to play guitar for Ozzy Osbourne, Guns N Roses, Never the Bride, Faith No More, David Lee Roth, 21 Guns and others. Touring has carried him across the country and around the world. Packes is also the co-owner of Azimuth Jag Records (New York and London). The UK press declared him one of the leading instrumental guitarists on the globe following the release of his “Axxe to Grind” release and he was also invited to the Montreaux Jazz Festival. He has announced the forthcoming release of new music and is spending time teaching guitar, bass, band classes and vocal coaching at The Music Vault Academy in Southern California. Packes co-owns and is head engineer/producer at Holy Grail Studios at Nyack, NY.  
    “Guitarists at the pinnacle of their craft are few and far between. Let's just say it's been a long time since someone like Packes has come along and there aren't too many like him.”
