Hello Listener, 

Spring is here! We are so ready to get in our gardens and hope you are as well.  In this episode, we are joined by Justinian Dispenza, who runs the Eastern Shore Permaculture Institute.   We talked all about what permaculture is and how to incorporate its ideas into our own gardens.   Permaculture is an approach to land management and philosophy that adopts arrangements observed in flourishing natural ecosystems.

We also have our: 

  • Native Plant of the Month (Eastern columbine, Aquilegia canadensis) at ~29:00
  • Bug of the Month (Bee Flies) at ~ 35:30
  • Garden Tips of the Month at ~ 37:40

We hope you enjoyed this month's episode and will tune in next month for more garden tips.
