Episode 85 - Jim Gale grew up loving nature and after building a business and selling it he had time on his hands and was looking for something meaningful in his life. He realized that the amount of toxic chemical pollution was killing our soil and our planet and wanted to do something about it that would make a substantial difference. That's when Jim discovered permaculture and sustainable farming. He then paired that with the 40 million acres of lawns in America that are a chemically sprayed toxic monoculture with zero yields. Jim's revolutionary business now transforms ordinary spaces into beautiful, food-producing landscapes. Jim's company provides consultation, design, and installation services to help you realize your edible landscaping, farm & garden, or permaculture goals. They specialize in food forests, herb gardens, and profitable vegetable farms. They love to work with all types of institutions including schools, universities, hospitals, hotels, homeowner associations, community centers, restaurants, and of course the general public.

As a new season begins and our second season ends, get ready to “fall” in love. The arrival of autumn welcomes a medley of hearty roots, good gourds, and herbal farm harvests. From the OBX, Chris starts off with helpful advice on when to shop for pumpkins, butternut, acorn, and carnival squash. Then, she and Brooke spice it up with perfect fall pairings – chard with nutmeg, pears with star anise, and more. (02:21) Speaking of which, Brooke gives a rundown of our featured autumn recipe: Purée of Caramelized Onion and Sweet Potato Soup. Need we say more? The delicious, sage-infused dish is easy to make and only gets better when topped with crème fraîche and toasted pepitas. (03:44) Also known as pumpkin seeds, pepitas steal the show again! This Just Simply… Cuisine recipe building block never fails as a garnish for autumn and winter soups, veggies, pastas – or simply eaten by the handful. (07:12) Later, our co-hosts share some handy kitchen tricks, including a tip to fix soup that's too thick (try saying that three times!). (10:32) As the seasonal theme continues, the ladies break down the art of “concept cooking” and the fruits of this ingredient-based philosophy, seen through the eyes of their children. (14:07) Before breaking to give us more goodies in Season 3, Chris and Brooke reflect on their fun-filled weekend together playing “refrigerator roulette” in the JSC kitchen. Spoiler alert: it ends with a mighty frittata!

Organic REV The first thing to understand about REV is that it is not an ordinary humic acid product that is chemically-extracted from leonardite, lignite, or other coals. Rather, it is a 100% naturally-occurring carbon, humic acid & fulvic acid source - along with exceptionally high levels of naturally-occurring microbial biomass that can increase nitrogen efficiency by up to 25%. REV replaces depleted soil carbon & bacterial biomass - and absorbs nutrients to make them more readily available to plants via their root systems.

The mellow fruitfulness of Autumn has been heralded by the subtle change in temperature and darker mornings and evenings in the garden. For Lucy Chamberlain and Saul Walker this starts one of their favourite times of year as Lucy's vegetable patch is at maximum yield producing food for East Donyland Hall and Saul revels in the changing colours in the canopies of his precious treescape at Stonelands. So join us throughout the season as we bring tales of crispy leaves, hibernating plants and plenty of pumpkins! Although Autumn may bring signs that this year's gardening season is coming to end - it is also the perfect time to plan and prepare for next years display - and this is very nicely encapsulated by planting bulbs. Bulbs are always a trust exercise in the hope of a brilliant display to start the Spring in the coming year, so Lucy and Saul have a chat about what bulbs they are purchasing and how they use them in the gardens they look after.Twitter links:Saul @GardeningSaulLucy @HeadGardenerLCIntro and Outro music from https://filmmusic.io"Fireflies and Stardust" by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com)License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)

As we near the close of a dry, dry season in the generally dry climates of much of the US west, this week Cultivating Place has the first of a two-episode focus on the inspiring beauty of dry gardens and the plants and people who love them. We start off with some high style in dry gardens with garden designer Daniel Nolan, owner of Daniel Nolan Design and author of Dry Gardens, High Style for Low Water Gardens, published in 2018 by Rizzoli Press, and photographed by Caitlin Atkinson. In the opening to his book, Daniel notes that “some of the most successful gardens are not about human's control over nature, but about how human's respond respectfully to their surroundings.” Daniel's work, which is consistently focused on strong design using as little water as possible, covers regions as wide ranging as Florida, South Carolina, Louisiana, Texas, Arizona, California and the West Coast generally.
