[EXCITING NEWS] RYG Is Joining the “Growing a Greener World” Team


2015 is stacking up to be an exciting year for us over here at RYG. First…we became a finalist for several of the Hall of Fame Awards at the 2015 Garden Bloggers Conference*. And now…today’s exciting news is…I’ve been asked to join the team over at Growing a Greener World®.

Growing a Greener World® (GGW) is an award-winning television show broadcast on national public television all over the U.S. and abroad. It features stories on organic gardening, green living, farm-to-table food, and environmental landscape design.  And what I love about it is…each episode focuses on truly inspirational people and their compelling efforts to make a positive impact on the world…and their stories are shared in a way that helps people like you and me make a difference at home. If you’ve never seen the show before, please check it out.

Growing a Greener World & Redeem Your Ground | RYGblog.comThe really cool thing for me is…as Consulting Director of Business Development at GGW, I’ll be able to combine my passions for intentional living, family, the outdoors, and landscape design with my business experience in sales and consulting. And while I’m doing that I’ll be helping the GGW team bring more of what their viewers are looking for in fresh new ways. I’m really looking forward to seeing where this crazy amazing opportunity brings all of us…you included.

But enough about me…let me tell you a little bit more about Growing a Greener World® and some of the people behind it.

sidebar-vineFirst of all, it’s produced by two really incredible people…who I’m so fortunate to be able to rub elbows with and learn from.

    • Growing a Greener World Joe Lamp'l - RYGblogJoe Lamp’l is Host and Executive Producer of GGW. He’s a highly recognized and award-winning TV personality in the gardening and sustainable living spaces. He’s hosted other gardening shows and has made the rounds as an expert on the network morning shows. He’s also an author of several books, a blogger, and syndicated columnist. But more importantly…beyond his impressive pedigree, he’s an all-around great guy.
    • Growing a Greener World & Redeem Your Ground | RYGblog.comTheresa Loe is Co-Executive Producer of GGW and On-Air Canning/Homesteading Expert. She has an equally impressive resume…from being an award-winning writer, author, and blogger…to being trained as a Master Food Preserver. With her blog Living Homegrown® and online Canning Academy®, Theresa works really hard to help everyday people live a farm-fresh lifestyle without living on a farm.  If you spend just two minutes with T’Loe you’ll see that she’s passionate about life and helping others live healthier lives.

Alright…that’s probably enough flattery of my new GGW friends for one post…don’t’cha think?!
