Favorite podcast at the moment!

I love listening to these short and sweet informative podcasts. As a new gardener with lots to learn the way things are simplified is great. Loved the companion planting a succession planting series this month and I even bought the companion planting book as a result!

Entertaining and informative

My only criticism is that they are too short. I do subscribe to the YouTube channel but love listening to the podcast on my way to and from work.

End of an era to another generation

This podcast has literally changed my life. My dad is towards the end of his life and gardening is something I didn’t realize how he influenced me. Growing up, we always had beautiful fresh food from our garden. Now we have such a wonderful thing to share and it really is because I have Kevin and the team to listen too for inspiration. I live in Escondido just 35 minutes from the Epic homestead so the local advice is invaluable! They are completely down to earth, funny, cheeky and clever. I am fussy too! Thanks peeps!
