My Favorite Growing a Greener World Episodes

I am an official fan girl of the Growing a Greener World TV show on PBS (although I almost always watch the episodes online). I have a shirt to prove it. In case you haven’t seen the show, it’s hosted by Joe Lamp’l and Patti Moreno, and they cover eco-friendly living mixed with traditional gardening ideas. Oh, and one of my favorite parts are the recipes with Chef Nathan Lyon.

Here are my top five episodes:

  1. Living Homegrown Fresh
  2. Growing Power
  3. Seed Savers Exchange
  4. Greensgrow Farm
  5. Waterwise Gardening

Appreciate the shout on the shipping pallet herb garden (or is it palette??) Some of them are starting to sprout already!

You ever start your pallet project?

I have a bunch of pallets/palletes stored in my garage but I haven’t had time to do anything with them yet. I am thinking of converting them into chairs…

Shipping pallets in my car right now! They’re intended to become a compost bin… we’ll see :)
