Brightening up my commute!

Rediscovered this podcast after taking a break from audiobooks on my hour commute. It’s perfect, entertaining, informative, diverse and so full of great information. I look forward to that long drive just to hear what they have to share that episode and see how I can use that info in my own gardening life.

Positively practical suggestions with amazing hosts!

Found this podcast about 3 weeks ago and have listened to >100 podcasts (some more than once)!! Topics come with timely advice, great ideas, thoughtful responses and a gentle but guiding approach. Their voices are calm and great to listen to, bringing a meditative aspect to the podcast. They are open to different gardening ideas and techniques, from both superstars and local novices. Also, very open and inclusive of all people; can tell this from podcast topics to the way they speak. Great representation of Canada!! What was a school project has turned into a Canadian standard.

Simply the best

I recently discovered grow guide and it’s been amazing. The hosts are delightful to listen to and have such a digestible way of sharing the knowledge filled episodes. Living in Canada this is exactly the podcast I needed. Most other gardening podcasts I’ve found are from California. Grow guide really let’s you know what to do in a short growing season and relieves a bit of the stress when gardening. Not only that but they’ve created a community to lean on!! Simply the best!!
