In this episode of the Vegetable Gardening show, Mike chats with Beatrice Bowles, a 6th generation gardener who turned her love for gardening into a successful story teller.

Who doesn't love a good story?  I know with 2 kids of my own I find great joy in spinning a yarn or two with them.  And any chance I get to combine gardening and story telling is always a treat.

That is what Beatrice brings to the table.  She has been able to use her love for gardening, the creativity and the design, and work that into a story telling career.

She is going to come on and tell us about her journey, how she got into story telling in the first place and what the future holds for a lot of things she is working on.

This and so much more on this episode of The Vegetable Gardening Show!

About this episode's guest, Beatrice Bowles

As a child, I hid books of fairy tales inside my schoolbooks.

Later, I found my own children adored hearing and reading stories,too.

So I became a storyteller for children in schools, museums, libraries, and botanical gardens.

When I proposed a recording of creation stories to New Dimensions Radio, mythical mythologist Joseph Campbell became my mentor, and Children of Desire was born.

Vicki Noble brought alive our hidden heritage of Mother Earth stories, Darryl “Babe” Wilson shared Native California stories. I love sharing stories with children!

In this episode of the Vegetable Gardening show, Mike chats with Cheryl Wilfong, author of the award winning book, "Garden Wisdom 365 Days", about how gardening and meditation can go hand in hand for a completely relaxing experience.

Cheryl writes a lot on her blog about meditating but she also loves gardening.  She has found a way to combine her two favorite activities to create the ultimate peaceful experience.

I can't disagree.  I myself find that simply walking around the garden is a peaceful experience, watching over the plants, constantly looking to see if anything is ready to be picked, and my son's favorite, looking for all of the "cool" bugs.

Cheryl is going to come on and tell us about her background in gardening and garden writing and how that translated perfectly into her world of meditation.

In this episode of the Vegetable Gardening show, Mike chats with Food Fermentation expert Alex Lewin, author of the book, "Real Food Fermentation: Preserving Whole Fresh Food with Live Cultures in Your Home Kitchen", about how you can easily preserve your home grown vegetables through the fermentation process.

Fermenting food is the chemical breakdown of whatever it is you are trying to ferment, by bacteria, yeasts, or other microorganisms.  Sauerkraut, beer, and wine are all examples of items that have gone through some sort of fermentation process.

Alex is going to come on and shed some light on fermentation, give us some examples of how to get started, teach us how fermentation works and why fermentation is truly the easiest way to preserve your home vegetable harvest.

From there, Alex will tell us about Kombucha, why it is a healthier option then other sugary beverages, and how you can easily make it yourself right at home.

About this episode's guest, Alex Lewin

I am an author, software engineer and architect, fermenter, health coach, real food activist, trained chef, raw milk drinker, musician, bicyclist, and motorcycle and scooter rider. I write the blog, Feed Me Like You Mean It. I think that Ball jars are the ultimate glassware.

In my food and health work, I call myself a health strategist. I cultivate health through food and action, by helping people to set health goals for themselves and meet them; advocating for real and healthy food; educating people and communities about health, wellness, food safety, and food preserving; and empowering people to retake control of their food. I do all of these things through my blog; through my work with non-profits; through other projects, including cooking demonstrations and a food sustainability book club; and through day to day interaction with people!

I have been featured for my work in various media including Harvard Magazine, Edible Boston, Stuff Magazine (Boston), and on public radio.

My goal is to share with the world basic truths about how humans and animals are meant to live, hope for a long and healthy life on the earth, the legacy of Dr. Weston A. Price and of our indigenous forebears, and my love of food in general and of sustainable meat, fermented vegetables, and real dairy in particular. I believe that the key to creating sustainable and healthy food supply chains throughout the world is for each of us to demand real food, local food, and healthy food, and for us to prepare that food in a conscious manner.
