Slow Money and Urban Guerilla Gardening

Green Diva Lisa was back in the studio from her travels and reported in about a video PSA she produced with her Mobile Film School for a Green Tech High School in Texas.

We had a warm and hopeful report from Green Diva Correspondent Khat O’Brien from Pittsfield, MA about her urban gorilla gardening preperations, which made us forget for a few minutes that it was snowing outside and got us psyched to start plotting and planning our spring gardening.

The highlight of the show was our conversation with Woody Tasch, author of Inquiries into the Nature of Slow Money: Investing as if Food, Farms and Fertility Mattered.  The concept and growing movement of Slow Money is geared towards connecting small farm enterprises with investors who want to help nurture and grow good food and sustainable communities from a long-range perspective. We had some audience participation via Twitter, which was fun and interesting.

This is my 1st year as a gardener, with many more years to come. Grow a couple extra starts and share with family, friends and/or neighbors... Let's start a Grow Your Own Garden Revolution! I've been saving seeds for Seed Bombs too! Healthy Food for All...

Fruit trees are the way to go! They help everyone-people, the environment & wildlife! The best is planting fruit trees in urban areas and on animal sanctuaries!

I am moving toward being more of a gardener after being a city girl for 30 years and it never really being a part of my life. There is something about a garden that is very timely now.
