In today’s episode Joe travels to different areas of the country to talk about controlling your growing environment when you can’t control the weather by using a greenhouse. He first visits Shenandoah Growers of Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, one of the only greenhouses that can certify its produce as organic.
Timothy Heyden, president and CEO of Shenandoah Growers, takes us on a tour of the greenhouse and gives us the inside look into how they keep up with over 1 million plants, which are in any stage of the growth process.
With commercial greenhouses, they have the growing process down to a science. With residential greenhouses, there are many similarities to commercial greenhouses. We meet Tim Martin, an Estate Gardener just north of Atlanta. He gives us his knowledge of residential greenhouses and how he has helped the Estate he works on to succeed, everything from air circulation to too much light.
Finally, we meet Sheri George and take a look at her greenhouse in the backyard of her home. She gives us tips and tricks of having smaller, more manageable greenhouses that can the average person can handle on a daily basis.
Chef Nathan takes the cilantro that Joe brought back from Shenandoah Growers and creates a very delicious meal.
