This week we chat with a long-time colleague and fellow gardenerd, Robert Kourik. He’s the author of 18 gardening books that focus on organic integrated systems, permaculture, irrigation, and edible landscaping.
His newest book, Sustainable Food Gardens: Myths and Solutions is packed full of myth-busting data and his research from working in the field since 1978. We recorded the podcast in October of 2021, and we explored the myths gardener’s encounter every season.
