Program Description

Program #3301: Old * Season Premiere September 6, 2008

Old is new again. During World Wars I and II, home gardeners supported the effort abroad by growing their own vegetables to feed their families. Today, the Victory Garden movement continues—representing the need to work toward sustainability in an effort to connect the planet to the plate. Join host Jamie Durie as he visits San Francisco to see the installation of "Victory Gardens 2008" in front of City Hall's Civic Center. Jamie speaks with San Francisco Mayor Kevin Newsom and renowned chef and passionate slow food advocate Alice Waters about this special city project. Then, Paul Epsom visits Mixed Border Nursery in Hollis, New Hampshire, to show us how many old varieties of plants are still favorites today—and how they've evolved through hybridization. Chef Michel Nischan's "Homegrown" segment features a master gardener whose greenhouse and garden supply a new restaurant.
