Back To The Garden is GMCR’s newest weekly program and our very first to be webcast live each week. Join your host Jean Eisenhower every Thursday at 4:30pm as she visits with local gardeners about their gardening expertise and gardening in the current season.

Jean is a self-described “gardening student” as well as a certified Permaculture designer, specializing in the creation of harmonious relationships between home, yard, garden, sun, wind, water and more. She’s a former radio news reporter and award-winning radio feature reporter, now devoted to supporting gardeners, beginning gardeners, and others who’d like to make their lives work more harmoniously with nature.

And if you miss the show on Thursday… Not to worry! It rebroadcasts on Saturday at 10:30am and you can watch it anytime via podcast in the archives below. And you can reach Jean with comments or questions at bttg@gmcr.org
