On Beyond Organic -- Springtime: Gardening & Backyard Farm Animals

When award-winning gardener and author Shepherd Ogden hears people claim that starting their own organic garden is too complicated, he has a quick reply. “I was an art major,” he says, “I didn’t have any training in this.”

Ogden believes an affinity for growing food is an inherent trait found in all humans. He says would-be gardeners who start small and commit to paying attention, can’t help but waken their inner green thumb.

Join host Jerry Kay to hear Shepherd’s advice on planting and harvesting backyard vegetables in less than a year. We’ll also talk with Gail Damerow, a small scale farming expert, about raising chickens, goats, rabbits and ducks.

The Beyond Organic one-hour radio show airs every Wednesday at 10 a.m. (PST), reaching thousands of listeners across North America via traditional radio stations, satellite radio, webcasting and podcasting. Shorter segments are rebroadcast on the CBS Radio Network and Armed Forces Radio. For information on this week's guests and to tune in, visit You can also listen at and
