16 Feb “Growing a Greener World” TV Filming at Garden Show
Joe Lamp’l, Host and Executive Producer of the national public television show “Growing a Greener World,” doesn’t let any grass grow under his feet! Each week he covers the latest in organic/sustainable gardening, eco-friendly living and DIY garden projects, while Chef Nathan Lyon cooks up a weekly recipe with fresh, seasonal produce. Many garden show attendees know and love Joe from his popular seminars “The Best of the Must Haves – The Coolest Garden Gear & Gadgets,” which he has done so often at the show.
This year Joe, along with Associate Producer Theresa Loe, will be returning to the show, and bringing the “Growing a Greener World” (GGW) team with them. They are filming an episode all about the Northwest Flower & Garden Show, showcasing how the garden show provides the latest in garden inspiration, education, entertainment and pure extravaganza, all the while helping gardeners to be better stewards of the earth and stirring passion and excitement for the upcoming gardening year. They will be filming and interviewing the award-winning garden designers on the garden floor and several national experts/authors from the acclaimed seminar series.
So if you spot Joe out and about at the show, or giving away prizes to people waiting in the ticket line, give him a big hello! And if you see a camera crew roaming around, smile. You might find yourself on the GGW garden show episode, which is scheduled to air July 30, 2011 on KCTS9. Or you can view all the full episodes in HD on the GGW website, http://www.growingagreenerworld.com/, right after the air date. The site also has links, articles, recipes, canning information and bonus video not shown on air.
And be sure to catch Joe in his seminar, as he joins a stellar lineup in Subaru Presents THE GARDEN SHOW: Incredible Edibles on Saturday, February 26 at 3:30 pm in the Rainier Room. Host Lorene Edwards Forkner will be talking to Joe about all the latest tips and techniques on edible gardening, along with fellow guest stars Graham Kerr, the former ‘Galloping Gourmet”; Teresa O’Connor, co-author of Grocery Gardening and also known as ‘Seasonal Wisdom’ to her Blog and Twitter fans; and digginfood.com’s creator Willi Evans Galloway. This is sure to be an entertaining hour as they share what went right – or what didn’t go right – in their own efforts at growing and harvesting an edible garden.
