Good episode? Give it some love!
I am planting a vegetable garden this year. I’m sure I am not alone in thinking that especially this year with so many unknowns surrounding the corona virus this is a very good time to grown my own veggies. One huge advantage I have over my suburban neighbors is I have a ready source of well composted horse manure. Here’s yet another way horse people can make a difference in this current crisis and in the climate change crisis - we can grow our own food.

I’ve been a gardener all of my life but flowers, not veggies, so I invited Suzanne Kernek to join me in a podcast conversation about vegetable gardens. Normally we would be talking about training, but not this time. Our subject was vegetable gardens - how to prepare a garden, and what to grow.

Last summer Suzanne set up a farm stand for the first time. Here’s how she describes it:

“Feed Thy Neighbor Farm Stand is neighborhood farm stand that offers vegetables and bouquets picked from my garden that day. It is an honor-system process with no prices. I encourage people to take what they need if they cannot afford anything. I have a dream of starting a program where neighbors collect their excess produce from their gardens and offer it collectively to the neighborhood, with all proceeds going to a different non-profit every week.”

That’s a great dream. It’s a great way in which horse people can indeed make a difference.
