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.
"Cycle And Recycle" repeats on Thursday, July 18, 2013 at 8:30 p.m. - What goes around comes around; that’s what recycling is all about. Recycling is a natural part of the growing process, whether its composting waste at home to big municipal recyclers, reusing and reclaiming water to irrigate plants, or finding novel new for organic waste products, host Nan Sterman show us how San Diego recycles green waster and gray water, to put them back to work growing more.
