Did you know that producing some our own food can be an empowering, affordable way to improve our diets, take control of our food choices, and protect our health? Join Food Sleuth Radio host and Registered Dietitian, Melinda Hemmelgarn, for her interview with Andy Tomolonis, a.k.a the “dirt-cheap gardener.” Based in Southeastern, MA, Tomolonis, is a journalist, organic farmer, and author of “Organic Hobby Farming: A Practical Guide to Earth-Friendly Farming in Any Space. ” He'll describe how he turned his backyard garden on a 1-acre lot in suburbia into an organic farm and eight-family neighborhood CSA –all while maintaining his full-time day job.
“Organic Hobby Farming” is easy to read with beautiful photographs and step-by-step "how-to" tips for even the most novice gardeners. Whether your "garden" amounts to a pot of herbs on a sunny windowsill, a yard-full of berry bushes and vegetables, or a small farm to help feed your community, Tomolonis has information for you. If you’ve got spring fever, and are itching to get your hands in the soil, tune in. We’ll talk about seeds, tools, farming methods, alternatives to pesticides and more.
