Those items on the menu? Why, they're right out here in the garden 17.7.2015 LA Times: Commentary
Once upon a time, it was unusual to have chefs who shopped at farmers markets, who established relationships with growers and whose menus often read more like pages from the Seed Savers catalog than what's for dinner. Now having a "market-driven" menu is common, even expected, especially in Los...

By any other name, the Knock Out rose would be just as sturdy 16.7.2015 Washington Post
Will Radler was still just an amateur rose breeder — a basement hobbyist, really — when he walked out of his home in Milwaukee carrying that fateful baby rose in a soil-stuffed cup.He didn’t realize it then, back in 1989, but he held in his hands a flower with such remarkable qualities that it would grow to be the bestselling garden rose in the country. His creation is credited with reversing the sagging fortunes of the difficult garden queen. Radler’s rose is so hardy and requires so little care that it can be planted in places once unimaginable — road medians, mall parking lots, ignored gardens. Read full article ...

Megan Richard: Triple Crown access needs study 14.7.2015 Steamboat Pilot
Historically, market data has shown a marked decrease in property values in heavily trafficked areas versus less travelled streets. In my opinion, if the city opens up Emerald Park to the Triple Crown through Pamela Lane, in violation of the policy set in 1996, it should hire an independent consultant to conduct a market analysis on the negative impacts on property values in that neighborhood. And before any alternative access is developed, there should be an analysis of the impact on the wetlands involved, and the impact to the Botanic Park, one of the finest high-altitude gardens in the country. This community gem hosts weddings, school field trips, yoga and meditation classes, concerts on the green, and of course, a variety of gardens and a home for native and medicinal plants. The park is solely supported by grants and donations and sees 25,000 visitors per year. Admission is free, and the experience is priceless. Any change to the existing policy with Triple Crown should be carefully analyzed and ...
