On the next Curse of the Golden Turnip:

This Sunday, in celebration of a spring we hope will come soon…Alan will interview one of New England’s finest perennial gardeners and nursery owners…Don Avery, of Cady’s Falls in Morrisville.

Don and Lela Avery are avid plant collectors and propagators, and their gardens are some of the nicest you’ll see anywhere in New England. This weekend Alan will ring in spring with a long talk with Don, and we invite you to call in with your questions! 7AM to 9AM on WGDR. 91.1, 91.7, or streaming at WGDR.org. Join us!


Listen to Curse of the Golden Turnip:

About Alan LePage: Alan LePage is a fifth generation Vermont farmer. In his youth, he went to Columbia University on a full scholarship, where he received a degree in philosophy and economics. When he got back to the family farm, it was growing up to trees, and Alan spent the better part of his twenties clearing the land, feeding the soil, and becoming a market gardener. Alan was an organic gardener back when it was a deeply suspicious thing to be, and he is one of the founders of the farmer’s market movement that started in the late seventies. Alan has mentored generations of aspiring market gardeners, and has been on air at WGDR for decades, sharing his knowledge of gardening and agronomics with loyal listeners.

Growing the Conversation: We invite you to send us your comments and questions, and join the conversation on Facebook HERE.  We are now posting news about upcoming guests, and gathering advance questions there. We will soon be podcasting Alan’s show, so you can listen to the show where and when you like. We’ll keep you posted on our progress on the Facebook page, so please ‘like’ us and stay in touch
