As the Worm Turns

Tuesday 6:30-7:00pm

“As the Worm Turns” features interview with local gardeners Lance Swigart and Lulu Volckhausen. Tips and tidbits from these interviews are posted here, and our listeners can make comments and ask questions in the comments forum below.

Lance Swigart lives nine miles outside of Hotchkiss. He grows 90 percent of his food and harvests 100 percent of his seeds from a garden located above 6,000 feet elevation. He has been building his incredibly beautiful garden space for the last 25 years, and is a wealth of information about all kinds of gardening, from grains to beans to fruits and vegetables, even nuts. Enjoy these photos taken by Suze Smith, a local photographer who has worked on this documentary for the past year in hopes that it will highlight the value of the organic food and sustainability movement in the irreplaceable North Fork Valley.

Lulu Volckhausen lives in Paonia and is well known for her her beautiful yard and garden spaces.
