More and more San Diegan’s strive to make socially, environmentally, and economically responsible choices. From earth-friendly and water wise gardens to organic foods and habitat restoration, we demand options that protect our health, feed our communities, and protect our natural resources. A GROWING PASSION is a lifestyle program that explores San Diego County’s agriculture and horticulture activities as an expression of this growing earth-friendly movement.
From backyard food production to major horticultural growers, from low water landscapes to sustainable practices around the home and in the garden, we tell stories about the natural and man-made landscapes that shape the social, cultural, environmental and economic interests of our community. We celebrate how San Diego grows. The series is hosted by Nan Sterman.
"Grow Your Own" repeats on Saturday, July 13 at 4 p.m. - If you've ever wondered if you could grow your own vegetables, we'll show you that you can. From starting seeds and seedlings, to gardening with children, to building your own raised bed, host Nan Sterman shows how experts and novices grow edibles.
Episodes of A GROWING PASSION will be available for online viewing following the broadcast.
