Program Description

Okay urban gardeners, get ready! This time on The Victory Garden, we start our new urban project here in Massachusetts — the renovation of a small 35 x 15 space in the heart of the city that poses some incredible challenges for the gardeners that live there. We'll then take a tour of two tiny city gardens in Belgium for some inspiration. And then it's over to another wonderful city, New Orleans, for some herb recipes with renowned Chef Horst Pfeifer.
