Yes, Mike does talk about gardening, but his program is much more than a “gardening’ show." His topics run the horticultural and environmental gamut--urban farming, plant and animal biodiversity, cleaning up our rivers, protecting our forest preserves, organic lawn care, recycling, energy audits and more. And he’ll make you laugh while he makes you think.

Mike knows who to talk to when it comes to all of these issues. From Openlands president and CEO Jerry Adelmann to Chicago landscaping legend Christy Webber, from arborist Shawn Kingzette to the fastest talking woman in horticulture, Jennifer Brennan. Drawing on the myriad resources of the Chicago Master Gardeners, the Illinois Chapter of the Sierra Club, and all the other heavy hitters in the green world of Chicago and the Midwest, Mike brings you people who really know what they're talking about and then he gets them talking . . . to him and to his audience. He always welcomes the input of his listeners and invites them to call in to make a comment or to ask a question.

And then there's "the crew." Mike is joined every week by a selection of knowledgeable young voices that include Lisa Albrecht, Sarah Batka, Rob Kartholl, and Carol Brewer.
