This week on We Dig Plants, hosts Carmen DeVito and Alice Marcus Krieg are talking about the ’20 to 30 something’ gardeners of the millennial generation. Speaking first to Dana Frigerio who is based in Italy with the digital magazine, Blossom zine, about targeting the younger generation. Blossom is a digital magazine that is dedicated to anything green, from gardening to design, vegetarian and traditional cooking, fashion, botany, and flowers. After the break, Carmen and Alice chat with Dee Nash from Red Dirt Ramblings, the home and garden blog. Carmen recently wrote the book The 20-30 Something Garden Guide. As it turns out, Dee has millennial aged children and found that many of the generation do not know how to garden or even have a basic understanding of having a green thumb, and this inspired her to try and rectify this. Explaining how important it is to pass on the passion to grow things, Dee also shares her methods for gathering research and some of the highlighted facts she learned in the process. Tune in for a great show focusing on the future of gardening with some insightful advice thrown in there as well! This program was brought to you by Rolling Press.
