Life has become a whirlwind since joining forces with Joe Lamp'l to create Growing A Greener World.
In our first year we:
Wrote and filmed 26 episodes
Traveled to 36 cities and 18 states
Got very little sleep
Drank a lot of coffee
(I'm talking gallons!)
But we told some incredible stories about gardeners doing great things for the planet and we all had a blast along the way. You can watch all the season one episodes HERE in high def.
Including the episode about my garden and chickens here in Los Angeles.
Although it was a huge adventure, we are always running at 200 miles an hour and many things get left in the wake – one of them being this blog. After writing posts for the GGW Canning & Preserving Blog, the Burpee Blog, the scripts for the episodes and coordinating all the filming, I had very little time to write here as well.
But you know, we learned a lot that first season. We are better, faster and we have streamlined our methods. I now have two assistants working for me (I know, right?) and am SO ready to dive back into our conversations HERE!
I have a new vision for this blog and I am very excited about it. The focus is still gardening, growing food, preserving, etc and yes, there will some behind-the-scenes of a garden show info here too…AND there will be more video. I have something up my sleeve! Can't wait to share.
In the meantime, if you want to see a quick summary of what our first year was about, check out this video we made.
Here is what it looked like from my side of the camera. (I'm holding the computer with the script to be sure Joe gets his lines right.)
