Sustainable Living and Alternative Health | Listen to this entire show:

Our special guest on today’s program is John Starnes, one of the Tampa Bay area’s premier urban homesteaders. He’s a freelance garden writer, rosarian, unusual edible plant expert, and class A dumpster-diver. Debbie Butts, a co-host of the Sustainable Living program also joins us with her wealth of gardening knowledge. John shares the feedback he’s received over the years as a garden writer. Using this feedback and experimentation he’s devised systems for growing just about anything successfully on his city lot in South Tampa. Also, he has come up with an interesting non-toxic and inexpensive fire ant bait using boric acid. You can contact John at johnastarnes@msn.com or us at sustainable@wmnf.org
