Annie Spiegelman, or the Dirt Diva, shares her story of moving from the parking lot pavement in New York City to playing with the weeds in Northern CA. She will inspire you to consider the many benefits of organic gardening. Her new book “Talking Dirt” helps you care for yourself, your relationships and your planet. Annie is a garden geek with style who will make you laugh as she drives home her point about stepping up and taking care of our environment.
Listen to this 11 minute podcast and learn the first common sense step to an organic garden.
Raised in the asphalt jungle of New York City, with a can of Raid in her hand, Annie Spiegelman moved to the Bay Area over ten years ago and became a passionate environmentalist and Master Gardener.
She is the author of two previous books on gardening (and life):
“ANNIE’S GARDEN JOURNAL: Some Thoughts on Roses, Life, Weeds, and Men”
and “GROWING SEASONS: Half-baked Garden Tips, Cheap Advice on Marriage and Questionable Theories on Motherhood.”
Spiegelman writes a popular garden column entitled Dirt Diva in the Bay Area’s Pacific Sun newspaper while also working in the film business as a First Assistant Director. She claims she spends her days dodging bullets from the cutthroat publishing business, the maniacal movie industry and her teenage son… And rarely uses medication.
