Why would host Joe Lamp’l Feature Our Gardens?

One of the first times Joe visited was to feature our urban honeybees. That’s because beekeeping continues to be a very popular topic for gardeners. So Joe and his Associate Producer Theresa Loe (also of Streamlined & Scaled Podcast fame) coordinated with me to share all things small space gardening with bees!

What happened on our Growing a Greener World Garden filming day?

Well, of course the sun barely came out. And it was really cold. So our hives weren’t very inactive for the Growing a Greener World gardening team. Still, I had a fantastic time sharing my garden and our honeybees. Plus, we had a great time reviewing my insights about gardening urban hives to maintain habitat that supports honeybees and other pollinators.

    Can’t wait to see the show. And congrats on the whole thing being over, it must be such a relief for you not to have to fret about it. The sun won’t come out here either.

    Great write up! We had such a blast filming in your garden yesterday. I just got home to Los Angeles a few hours ago and managed to bring home a jar of Ballard Bee Honey in my suitcase! Can’t wait to open it up and remember the fun we had up in Seattle.

    Thank you for your hospitality. You kept us fed and watered the whole time. We would have run out of steam if it weren’t for your snacks and hand warmers! And thank you for being such an easy subject on camera. You were a dream!

    But most of all thanks for the friendship. It was a real hoot for me to fly up with our team and watch my friend be on our show! Now…get some rest and bask in the glory!

    Robin. It was a great afternoon being with you and your garden. You really are a natural for TV and that sure makes the rest of our jobs easier. As Theresa said, between the fantastic garden, the hand warmers, the food…ok, mostly the food, we had an exceptional segment with you. Thanks again and i can’t wait to see it myself.
