Spoken Garden

Our Story

Throughout the past 20 years, it seemed most everyone had a home gardening question for one of us. With a background in horticulture, gardening, landscape, and teaching, we wondered if we could make a difference by educating others about their gardens and yards. We realized the need was there which we could provide. Podcasting sounded like an interesting, new challenge, and ta-da...Spoken Garden, the podcast was created. Three months later, Spoken Garden expanded to include a website with a blog.
