Short and you the Point

I love this podcast. He gets to the point right away and you leave with some solid information. Even though I’m an east coast gardener and he’s on the west coast , I always learn something that I can use.

Restore the natural world

Daron always has useful ecological information to teach so that anyone can grow their own food, create wildlife habitat, or just garden more sustainably. Very down to earth and accessible. Excellent job.

Thanks for all that you do to help us!!

Many thanks to you Daron for all that you do to help more people become informed about nature and our own health, wellbeing and influencing humans to have a better relationship with nature.

If more people put effort into restoring nature, healthy foods and spent more time outside we would be able to improve our health and ensure a future for fish, wildlife and humans for generations to come!

Thanks again for your help and influence!!

Sincerely,

Jeff Davis
