I was honored and excited to be a guest host for Dr. Pat’s radio show out of Seattle and on the internet on December 22nd. I invited one of my favorite people in the whole world, Annie Spiegelman, the Dirt Diva, to be my special guest. Below you can listen to the whole show. Annie is such an inspiration, and transformed her life when she left New York City where she worked in the movie business and moved to California and became a passionate environmentalist. She is now a Master Gardener, and author of three gardening books. Her latest book, “Talking Dirt,” makes it simple and easy for anyone…Annie always says if she can do it, anyone can.
She shares why we should reconsider having a lawn, especially in dry climates like California. Check out SafeLawns.org, LawnReform.org, and Composters.Com to find out how to fertilize without using pesticides. If you want to start a school garden, like Annie did, contact your local Master Gardeners or the American Horticulture Society, AHS.org. Annie and her books are chocked full of fabulous information about how we can take care of ourselves, our families, our communities, and our precious soil. Check her out at DirtDiva.com.
