Program Description

The Victory Garden celebrates fall harvest! Join us as we reap the bounty of our 27th season and share an exploration of time-tested gardening ideas with the editor of Old Farmer's Almanac. Pre-eminent heirloom gardener Amy Goldman also returns to demonstrate creative ways of incorporating gourds in your fall plans. We'll also show how a feast can be found by foraging for food in nature, and cooking up what we unearth. Foraging expert Russ Cohen creates a delicious wild salad and vegetarian gumbo. And finally, as we put our garden to bed, you'll learn how it's never too early to start planning for spring. See you in April!
