In this episode of Mother Earth News and Friends, we talk with Liza Ziegler about why vegetables love flowers and ideas for companion planting.
Charlotte Brunin is the producer of the MOTHER EARTH NEWS and Friends Podcast. Charlotte is currently working on creating an urban homestead to lead by example when it comes to eco-conscious living. She is currently planting a 3-sisters garden and may be adding flowers after this episode.
Lisa Ziegler is a cut-flower farmer, author, and nationally recognized speaker on organic cut-flower gardening. Ziegler has been farming since 1998; her urban 3-acre farm produces thousands of stems of flowers each week in season. She sells her flowers to florists and through her community-supported agriculture (CSA) programs. Ziegler is the founder and owner of The Gardener’s Workshop, a catalog and online shop offering the gardening tools and supplies she uses in her own gardens.
