Recently we had the amazing opportunity to work with some of the folks behind Growing a Greener World, an inspirational series on PBS.  Each episode shares a story of how people, places and companies are using gardening and green practices to promote environmental stewardship and explores how viewers can employ these practices themselves.

The stellar crew visited our Lila B. studio, the owner, Baylor’s, deck, and our {parking} lot garden for an episode that airs this Fall. The hot topic: small space gardening.  Check out your local PBS station for forthcoming air times, but for now you can see it online.

We worked with Host Joe Lamp’l, Associate Producer Theresa Loe, and Chef Nathan Lyon.  Joe Lamp’l is (as you might have guessed) the knowledgeable and charming ‘Joe’ from Joe Gardener, so you can expect to have fun AND learn something valuable.  Nathan Lyon takes food from the gardens visited on the show and demonstrates how to cook something wonderful with the ingredients.  And… if you are wondering if he is as funny in person as he is onscreen, our answer is absolutely!  With Theresa Loe (incredible urban homesteader and gardening maven) producing, episodes are power-packed, sharing the newest, most exciting news from the sustainable gardening frontier.

They were introduced to our work by authors of a great book on vertical gardening we recommend by Susan Morrison and Rebecca Sweet called Garden Up!.  Susan and Rebecca are California-based writers and garden designers that are always looking for new and exciting ways to think about space and integrating the classic garden with regionally appropriate plants. They begin the episode and provide insight and tips for any person with a will to grow.

We had a great time working with everyone and we know you will really enjoy the episode.  See the slideshow for behind the scene photos and tune in for Growing a Greener World!
