Hi everybody, it’s Joe Lamp’l and welcome to Growing a Greener World. Well if you love to garden and spend time outdoors, and really care about environmental stewardship, you’ve come to the right place.
Well, lately I’ve been involved in a new project that’s kept me so busy, it’s required a temporary deviation from my normal podcasting production schedule. I’m planting a Victory Garden at my house, sufficient to feed my family of four all their vegetable needs for the entire summer. But that’s not the biggest challenge. I only have $25 to do it all! I’ll tell you more about that just ahead.
Next, it’s an interview with Fern Marshall Bradley. She’s the author of Reader’s Digest All-New Illustrated Guide to Gardening. And with this new revision, it’s all-organic! If ever there were a complete guide to organic gardening, this may be it. Here What Fern has to say about it in our conversation just ahead.

Intro: Fern Marshall Bradley Segment
I love gardening books and I have a library full of them. One of the best parts about being in my position is having the opportunity to receive and review new gardening books. And although I can make a positive case for just about any new book on my favorite subject, once in a while you come across that special book that you keep coming back to. Well this is one of those. At nearly 600 pages, Reader’s Digest All-New Guide to Gardening hits a home run with me because in this edition, it’s all organic!
Fern Marshall Bradley is the author. She’s a frequent writer and editor whose favorite topics are of course, gardening and sustainable living. A co-author of Reader’s Digest Vegetable Gardening, she also conceived and edited The Organic Gardener’s Handbook of Insect and Disease Control, and The Expert’s Book of Garden Hints, among others. Bradley is also a former gardening books editor for Rodale so it’s no surprise she was tapped to write this latest and most comprehensive guide to organic gardening yet.
I sat down and recorded this conversation recently with Fern to learn more about this book, and why now was revised to be all organic…
