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.
"From Vine To Wine" - San Diego's vineyard and winery industry has a centuries-long tradition of growing grapes and making wine.
In this episode, explore the current state of vineyards and wineries, from the county's largest operation to backyard growers and winemakers. Visit the next generation of wine makers and see how they are reinventing the process.
Episodes of A GROWING PASSION will be available for online viewing following the broadcast.
