Getting in the Dirt with Hunters Bay Radio

Getting in the Dirt with Hunters Bay Radio

We are excited to announce that starting March 7th, I will be hosting a new gardening show on Muskoka’s Hunters Bay Radio.  The show, much like my take on gardening will be a blend of conservation, ecology and horticulture.

About the Show

A gardening show made for the Muskoka gardener. Once a month, Laura will get into the weeds about gardening in Muskoka, sharing stories and tips from her experience as well as other landscape professionals.

In the Dirt aims to blend Laura’s passion for gardening and conservation, showing listeners that they can have a beautiful garden that also provides habitat for local wildlife. With a focus on natural gardening methods, Laura may occasionally slide into ecology and wildlife conservation.
