Best in Class

I have been cycling through many podcasts about native plants, bees, sustainably, etc. Cultivating Place has been a great place to land. Subject matter is focused, but diverse enough for every episode to be a learning opportunity.

Love listening

I like to think about gardening more than actually gardening and this podcast is just right for me. I hope that sounds like a complement because it was meant to be. Jennifer's enthusiasm and passion is contageous.

A Delight!

As a longtime gardener I’ve learned that gardening is a blend of science, skill, art and community. There are many, many resources for the science and skill parts of gardening. Cultivating Place primarily focuses on the art, community and spiritual aspects of gardening. I love it and look forward to the drop of each weekly episode. And, I love the Cultivating Place song - I find the refrain a wonderful affirmation for daily life - make beauty wherever I go. Thank you!
