This week on iEat Green with Bhavani, on the Progressive Radio Network, I am very excited to have as my guest, Barbara Damrosch, who, along with her husband, Eliot Coleman, run one of the oldest, and most successful organic farms in America. Ms. Damrosch has been called “the queen of organic growers” by the New York Times, and is a guru for sustainable living. In her new book, The Four Season Farm Gardener’s Cookbook, she shares some of her favorite recipes, while sharing some of her secrets of organic growing. It’s like getting two books in one! I hope you can join us, for what promises to be an insightful discussion and exploration of a true “Farm to Table” icon.
