Savor: Veggies, Herbs, And Help Growing Your Own
Even if you go to great lengths to eat food that grew up near your home, that doesn't necessarily mean you grow any yourself. We get it, it can be daunting to start a garden, and a lot of work to maintain one.
Enter the people of the Rogue Valley business As the Garden Grows. Co-founder Aisha Young is our guest in this month's edition of our food segment, Savor, along with food stylist and segment producer Will Smith.
Aisha's business not only grows vegetables and herbs, it helps people plan their gardens, and offers further coaching to help those gardens be successful. We get the lowdown on the business, and get a seasonal recipe from Will, in this month's Savor.
