    Forget the Groundhog. . . I'm ready for Spring

    Forget the Groundhog. . . I'm ready for Spring

    Early spring is an important time of year; it’s when we begin to slowly shake off the chill of winter and see our first few signs of early green life. But how can we be absolutely sure when it's safe to start planting for Spring? Is there an official start date that all growers know about? And after a long and cold winter, where do we even start? Our friend Jade, The Black Plant Chick (host of "Black Plant Chick Pod"), returns to share the top plant care habits to adopt this spring. Mangesh explores the folklore and myth around spring weather patterns and talks to Erin Schanen (creator of "The Impatient Gardener" blog and YouTube channel) about how we can get our gardens ready now at the end of winter to prepare for spring.

    Getting Fiddle Leaf Fit

    Have you ever come in from the yard after planting and pruning actually felt sore? It’s as if you went to a high intensity workout class, but you were actually just turning the compost. You’re not alone! Gardening does a body good. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, gardening qualifies as actual exercise and just 30-45 mins tending to the plants in your backyard can burn up to 300 calories. Gardening can be the gateway to fitness and in this episode, host Mangesh Hattikudur chats with fitness and travel journalist Annie Daly about her reporting on gardening as a workout. Mango also does some stretching with author and founder of Yoga on the Lane Naomi Annand as they discuss the connection between yoga and gardening.

    The Living Universe in Your Backyard - featuring Jim Gaffigan

    The Living Universe in Your Backyard - featuring Jim Gaffigan

    There’s a whole world in your backyard with multiple layers and symbiotic relationships. While we may take on the role of watering, pruning and planting, there are creatures and plants that have their own responsibilities and roles to play that are seen and unseen. Together they create an entire infrastructure and network. And while some are more helpful than others, ultimately it all works together to create a green oasis brimming with life. Host Mangesh Hattikudur dives into the delicate balance among the many living things with which we share our backyards. In this episode, Mango speaks with comedian, writer and actor Jim Gaffigan about observing all of these interdependent connections in our backyard. We also hear from Michelle Bertelsen, an ecologist at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center about the science of invasive species.

    In the age of free two-day shipping and groceries on demand, it may still be shocking to know that many low-income residents of cities still suffer from a scarcity of affordable or quality fresh food. These are food deserts, and they still exist in thralling metropolises like New York City and Atlanta. Host Mangesh Hattikudur speaks to growers and organizations who are growing for good. These are community members and outsiders who introduce sustainable gardening solutions to help communities gain access to fresh produce and healthy foods. In this episode, Mango checks in with Kamal Bell, founder of Sankofa Farms, and Gary Oppenheimer, founder of AmpleHarvest.Org, and learns about what they've been doing to combat food apartheid.
