HomeGrown 03/01/09 – Hawaiian Ethnobotanical Garden & 250 Years of Kew

by Brad Yost on March 1, 2009

HomeGrown literally spans the globe this week with stories on the history of Kew Gardens in London, England, and a personal visit to the Amy B.H. Greenwell Ethnobotanical Garden in Hawaii. Author and horticulturist Allen Paterson talks about his book celebrating Kew’s 250 years as a cultural institution and one of the “must see” gardens of the world.  Bob Hill travels to Hawaii to visit an ethnobotanical garden near Kona where native Hawaiian plants are being restored, and their uses as food, clothing and even weapons are explained.

Thought you’d like to know that your photo link for kew gardens took me to a flikr page with search results from all “Kew Graden” tags. First few pics featured several “non gardening” pics.

HOWEVER, let me also take the opportunity to say that I haven’t missed an episode since I discovered HomeGrown last fall. You have a good mix going!

Favorite episodes… Hummingbirds, Catalpas
