Life lessons and conversations from the garden. Whether you are a beginner or life long gardener, we all have something to learn from our gardens. Conversations include topics on edible gardens, flower gardens, permaculture, urban farming, pollinators, natural history, and much more!
A Midsummer Garden Update & Hello
Hello! It's been a few months and here's a midsummer update for you about what's growing (or not!) in my garden!
The Pollinator Victory Garden | Kim Eierman
My guest for today is Kim Eierman, author of the new book The Pollinator Victory Garden. And if you've been listening to podcasts for a few years you've probably seen her Ecobeneficial Podcast. Kim is an environmental horticulturist and ecological landscape designer specializing in native plants. Based in New York. Our conversation spans a wide-range of topics regarding pollinators but I hope the takeaway is that you don't need acres of landscape to become more pollinator friendly.
A Naturalist’s Book of Wildflowers | Laura C. Martin
Laura C. Martin is the author of 26 books that span a 40 year career. She paints and writes from Atlanta, Georgia where she's lived throughout her life. Gardening and art was cultivated in her from a young age with parents who enjoyed both and over the years she adapted writing her books to also illustrating them, too. Her latest is A Naturalist's Book of Wildflowers, which she illustrated herself. In it are beautiful paintings of the specimens she chose to highlight as well as wonderfully detailed information about each plant species from their range, wildlife partners, and their cultural history and botanical uses. I think you'll love our conversation and want to add her book to your field guide collection.
Early Spring Botanical Walk at Roy E. Larsen Sandyland Sanctuary
At the end of February we took an early spring hike at the Roy E. Larsen Sandyland Sanctuary in Silsbee, Texas. Butterflies, violets, and lots of spring blooms abounded!
Under Western Skies: Majestic Garden Landscapes of the American West | Caitlin Atkinson & Jennifer Jewell
Photographer Caitlin Atkinson and writer and garden podcast/radio host Jennifer Jewell teamed up to bring fabulous gardens of the American West to the rest of the garden world. In Under Western Skies: Visionary Gardens from the Rockies to the Pacific Coast, we see the diversity of the western landscape beyond the 100th Meridian. Caitlin and Jennifer speak on the podcast about the creation of the book, the work involved to capture the gardens on the ground during a pandemic and how they coordinated to put the book together of this magnitude when they were often not even in the same state. Each page will have you gleaning inspiration and ideas to bring to your own garden.

Kitchen Garden Medicinal Plants | Dr. Mark “Merriwether” Vorderbruggen
Dr. Mark Vorderbruggen returns to the podcast to talk about medicinal herbs commonly found in your kitchen gardens.
A great way to learn more about the FNST!
Interesting! Thanks for all the time and energy producing these podcasts. I’ve hiked Ecofina ( before Michael), Suwannee and will be hiking St Marks soon. As a Minnesota resident this is a fun way to connect to the trail.
Walk through a garden any time of day
I always feel like I’m wherever Misti is when I listen to The Garden Path podcasts. The way she describes everything helps me picture it. I feel like I’m there with her AND I learn a lot more about gardening and plants in each episode. She also interviews other interesting gardeners that bring even more to the table. So interesting and relaxing at the same time! I love it!
Honest and interesting
This podcast always introduces me to new concepts and ideas. Highly recommend. Gardening touches on so many things and Misti does a great job of engaging her guests.
