Program Description

Urban Oasis

We're going coast to coast on The Victory Garden today, starting with host Jamie Durie who takes you to a city oasis that sits on top of the Frank Gehry-designed Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. Then, what do the rapper 50-cent, actress Bette Midler, and the Broadway show Wicked all have in common? Would you believe victory gardens? All of these folks are working with the New York Restoration Project's citywide effort to grow and eat local. And the result? Community gardens are popping up all over the city. Gardening correspondent Paul Epsom is in New York to check it out and gather tips on how you can build a community garden of your own. Finally, celebrated chefs Michel Nischan and Barbara Lynch visit Boston's oldest farmer's market and mix up a fresh salad using the very best local seasonal produce.
