Watch Laurie and Mindy talk about Laurie Berkner's Garden: Eat, Play Grow HERE.
The winter edition of Laurie Berkner's Garden: Eat, Play, Grow will remind listeners that even in wintertime, plants are always busy! Highlights include a chat with Lee Coykendall of the United States Botanic Garden in Washington, DC, as well as interviews with several farmers who explain what they do on the farm over the winter, especially with their animals. Special guest Catherine McCord of Weelicious will share winter recipes that use nourishing foods. Laurie and Mindy will also talk to kids about winter foods, discuss what grows in different parts of the country at this time of year, and play a round of "Two Realsies and a Whopper," offering up surprising facts about which mushrooms can actually help keep us healthy during cold and flu season.
Also featured in this episode will be a conversation with Jen Chapin of WhyHunger about how to help families who have difficulties getting adequate food. Directly following the program, SiriusXM's Kids Place Live will broadcast an in-studio concert by The Laurie Berkner Band that benefited WhyHunger.
