Growing a Greener World

Environmentally friendly outdoor living is combined with traditional know-how in this series from American Public Television, which features people and places making a positive impact on the planet. In each episode, gardener Joe Lamp'l demonstrates a hands-on gardening project, and celebrity chef Nathan Lyon creates simple cuisine using fresh, local ingredients. Stories include a Seattle beekeeper who sets up a backyard hive, growing flowers without using chemicals, and a tour of a soil-testing lab.
