Living Homegrown Podcast with Theresa Loe
About This Show
LivingHomegrown is all about living farm fresh without the farm. Through canning and preserving, artisan food crafting, edible gardening and small-space homesteading (including backyard chickens & goats) you can enjoy the flavors of the season and live a more sustainable lifestyle no matter how small of a space you call home. Hosted by TV canning expert and national PBS TV producer, Theresa Loe, this weekly podcast continues the flavorful conversation happening at LivingHomegrown.com and the Canning Academy. Alternating between Q and A episodes where you can ask Theresa your burning canning/homesteading questions and interviews with the rock stars of the DIY food movement, each weekly episode helps you live closer to your food.
