Growing a Greener World® is an award- winning national PBS television series, airing 52 weeks a year throughout the United States, parts of Canada and multiple other countries. All of our information from the television series and much more is also available on our website at GrowingAGreenerWorld.com as well as other sites, audio podcasts players and more.
Our format for all content that is broadcast on-air and posted online is intended to be both educational and entertaining, with a focus on horticulturally-based information but with a broad expansion into related areas.
Our content focus is primarily around organic gardening, small farming, sustainable / green living, healthy lifestyles, farm / garden-to-table, canning and preserving the harvest and issues related to environmental protection and sustainability.
In addition we seek opportunities to tell the stories of people, places, organizations and companies doing good things for the environment. These features may or may not include methods that relate to horticulture or agriculture, but rather sustainable or regenerative practices in whatever their respective realm of influence and opportunity.
Examples may include companies that are making changes to reduce landfill impact, conversion to cleaner energy, reduction in packaging or solid waste consumption, or tangible changes towards protection of the environment, etc.
Cheryl Morton says
I watched your show for the first time today and loved it! Being ecologically sound is very important to my family. I would like to suggest my 30 year old son Lucas as a possible story for your media content. He is a native Kansas Citian and eventually moved to Eugene Oregon to live a more environmentally friendly life. He has an agronomy degree from Missouri State, volunteered for the Peace Corp and did an internship at a local organic farm in Kearney, Mo, (Fair Share Farms). What I think is extraordinary about my son is how passionate and knowledgeable he is for his age, (he started growing gardens at at 11!). In Eugene, he designed his own year-round organic garden and contributes “0” landfill waste. (so does almost everyone in his neighborhood). It is a tight-knit community where everyone has a vegetable garden their front lawn and wild berries growing in the alleyways. They swap vegetables and spend time with one another throughout the year. An amazing “Green Living” story for sure!
