Today on Your Call: What is the significance of gardening in your life?

On today's Your Call, we’ll share ideas about what it means to garden and what plants are best for planting and harvesting this time of year.  From community gardens to guerilla gardens to backyard and rooftop gardens-- people are finding creative ways to grow plants for food, medicine, and beauty.   What are you planting this spring?  How does gardening change your feeling of connection to the natural world or to your community?  Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org.  Can local gardens help more people live healthier lives?  It’s Your Call with Holly Kernan, and you.
