About this week's guest, Jane Perrone

I'm Jane Perrone - freelance writer and presenter and producer of indoor gardening podcast On The Ledge. I like growing weird veg and houseplants and walking in the countryside with my hound Wolfie.

I used to be gardening editor for the Guardian, and I still freelance for them. You can find all my work for the Guardian here. I also write for other publications, including Grow Your Own magazine, The English Garden, Rakes Progress and NFU Countryside magazine.

One of the perks of my job is special access to the Chelsea flower show. In this picture I'm about to launch myself down the bendy slide on Diarmuid Gavin's pyramid garden at RHS Chelsea 2012.

About this week's guest, Susan Mulvihill

Hello! My name is Susan Mulvihill and I am passionate about vegetable gardening. I’ve been writing vegetable garden columns for the Sunday edition of The Spokesman-Review for many years and am the co-author of Northwest Gardener’s Handbook.

Since 2002, I’ve been a Spokane County (Wash.) Master Vegetable Gardener and am a longtime member of the Association for Garden Communicators.

It is my belief that everyone should be able to grow a vegetable garden, and toward that end, I’ve dedicated this website, my columns and my life to teaching others how to do just that!

My main interests are growing vegetables and fruits organically, watching the birds that visit our garden, and pursuing both botanical and wildlife photography.

One of my favorite ways of reaching vegetable gardeners has been through my how-to videos on a wide variety of topics.

About this week's guest, Gary Oppenheimer

Gary Oppenheimer is our Executive Director and Founder. A self described aging geek, he has worked with computers and communications going back to the 1970’s. As director of a community garden in 2009, he learned about the wasted food in many plots and created a program called “Ample Harvest” to get the excess food to local food pantries.

 

Realizing this as a nationwide problem, he created a nationwide solution called AmpleHarvest.org to use the Internet educate, encourage and enable millions of growers nationwide to share their ample harvest with local food pantries in all 50 states.

The Deflame Diet

 

About this week's guest, Dr. David Seaman

DeFlame.com is devoted to nutritional and other lifestyle approaches for reducing inflammation.

Deflame.com was started by Dr. David Seaman, the first person to author a scientific paper that specifically hypothesized that diets can be pro-inflammatory or anti-inflammatory. Since that paper about the “diet-induced proinflammatory state” was published in 2002, thousands of papers and numerous books have been published on the topic of diet and inflammation, which is now accepted as mainstream. Dr. Seaman’s original paper was referenced by researchers at the CDC and Harvard University.

 
Education:

    BS from Rutgers University in 1982
    Doctor of Chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College in 1986
    MS in Bio/nutrition from the University of Bridgeport in 1991

While in clinical practice in the late 1980’s, he became aware of the developing research that linked nutrition to the inflammatory process and noticed that appropriate dietary changes could significantly improve various musculoskeletal and visceral conditions. Based on this experience, he began to focus on nutritional approaches for inflammation/pain control and has followed the related scientific literature ever since. This led to the publication of the first book on nutrition for pain and inflammation, which was followed by many articles and book chapters devoted to this topic. His educational efforts resulted in being awarded the 2006 Academician of the Year by the American Chiropractic Association.

While no one can be certain of their disposition for disease expression, Dr. Seaman’s goal is to live as long as his grand/great grand parents who lived into their 90’s. Here he is pictured with his Great Aunt who lived to be 100 years old.

His goal is to live as long as his relatives and hopes to do so by following an anti-inflammatory nutrition program and a vigorous exercise program.
