In this episode, I am trying something new. This is the pilot episode of the new Small Scale Gardening Podcast. In this podcast, I am focusing on gardening and food preservation, which are my passions.  As I learned from my good friend Greg Burns, I need to “Start with the Why” and unpack the goals and objectives with you as I begin this effort.

Today’s Topics

I talk about the following topics in this podcast including:

  • Why I started blogging, podcasting and vlogging in the first place
    • It builds on previous articles archiving Small Scale Gardening here and here
  • Our elders and their knowledge and experience
  • Important Questions:
    • Why start this podcast?
    • Why split it out from Small Scale Life?
    • What do you hope to accomplish?
    • Check yourself before you wreck yourself….
  • Goals and Objectives
  • The future: interviews and garden tours; livestreaming on the Small Scale Gardening YouTube Channel

Call to Action

I would love if you did three things as we move forward with this effort:

  • Provide ratings and feedback on the podcast app of your choice (especially iTunes, since many of you are listening there.
  • Let me know if there is a topic you’d like me to cover or a person of interest you would like me to interview.  It might be tough to get that person but I can try (depending who it is.  Or course, I COULD impersonate the heck out them)
  • Share this with your family and friends, especially as I cover topics or interview people that might interest them!
