Program Description

Light Up Your Garden

Host Jamie Durie visits the renowned Ruth Bancroft Garden in Walnut Creek, CA, to take a closer look at specimens that reflect light, absorb light, or bring light into your garden. Meanwhile, gardening correspondent, Paul Epsom is in New York City searching for a cleaner, greener Big Apple. The city is attempting to shrink its carbon footprint, and one of the ways it's succeeding in doing so is through the "Million Trees" initiative. The New York Restoration Project is behind this effort—and while it takes being out on the streets planting trees one at a time, it's starting to make a real difference. Finally, Chef Michel Nischan, will be on hand to take us from garden to table. This week he's creating a delicious, healthy "three sisters" succotash featuring beans, corn, and pumpkin.
