Patch in Front
Program Number


Series Description

Over 6 half-hour shows in June, two per week, Thalassa Cruso shows how to accomplish a minor miracle of inner city land reclamation.

See June 1973 Prime Time for cover story. Series release date: 6/12/1973

Program Description

As the backyard begins to show the effects of Thalassa’s imagination and good sense, she’s out front, examining a six foot square plot that faces the street with ragweed and a few dismal shrubs. In a jiffy, she’s removed the shrubs and gone to work on the ragweed, but without recourse to dangerous poisons.
