Smart Garden 2020: Tune into WCCO Smart Garden radio show

Selfie, WCCO Radio
Minneapolis, MN
Year-round, Extension answers questions on the WCCO Smart Garden radio show, on AM 830,
Saturdays 8-9am. As you can imagine with listeners from across Minnesota, in neighboring states and even streaming in other countries (as far as Zimbabwe!) there is never a dull moment on the show. For a behind-the-scenes look at WCCO Smart Garden, take a peek at our video: Smart Garden Show Behind-the-scenes

My colleagues and fellow plant geeks, Mary Meyer and Theresa Rooney, and I admit to getting stumped now and then - and we are never afraid to admit it. Regardless, we enjoy the challenges Minnesota gardening presents, and love helping people with every kind of question under the sun.

We surveyed listeners and were happy to find that 77% of respondents reported "frequently or always learning something new" when they listen to the show. Are you an avid listener? A new listener?Experience gardener or just starting your first planting? Share your experience: Smart Garden Survey.

Tune in, call in and text in your question! (Busy on Saturdays? You can always get up-to-date listening to the podcasts of the show).
