The Joy of Hobby Farming

Laugh, learn and listen to the Green Divas Radio Show & Podcast!

BIG news about the Green Divas Radio Show — We are moving the live show to a new studio and now we’ll be streaming live, podcasting AND reaching the powerful broadcast audience in northern New Jersey and the New York metro market from WMTR 1250AM every Saturday morning from 10 – 11am EST. First show at the new time is June 4 — mark your calendars!

In the meantime, we are still having too much fun in our homegrown studio!

Another week devoted to irreverent silliness and more farming and homegrown (literally) information. Brian Hennessy of Lusscroft Farm popped into the studio to talk about their annual Medicine Wheel garden celebration — a weekend of art, gardening, music, poetry, dancing and more.

GD Heather called in from the greater DC area and talked about Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment and a fun make-your-own rain barrel workshop.

We talked to author Mike Levatino about his book, The Joy of Hobby Farming and his hobby farm, Ted’s Last Stand. They named their farmstead after their first chicken/rooster that was a fox casualty.

Watch Mike’s hilarious and informative video about one of his ornery roosters, Lester Zamboni Lagana.

Interesting but personally I wouldn't want to deal with a 'floggin' type rooster. If I had a hobby farm I'd probably focus on crops.

I love to eat things I grow myself! I also enjoy sharing if we have too much!

That's an aggressive rooster, but it does add to his character. My grandmother (that has been having chickens around before I was born) never had any fiery tempered ones (or maybe I never got close enough?).

Cool, thanks.
