About this week's Guest, Vincent Suozzi of the Ring Weeder:

Hi I'm Vinnie and I currently work at Westbury Union Free School District in Westbury Long Island. I teach 6,7 and 8th grade Physical Education and Health.

I also have been in the Landscaping business for over 30 years. I specialize in flower design and rose care.

I'm married to my wife Anna for 30 years and have 2 sons, John 26 (graduate of Drexel University in Philadelphia) and Stephen 23 (graduate of The George Washington University in DC).

I love teaching and I love designing flower gardens. I have the best of both worlds. Im always thinking of new and creative "out of the box" activities for my students. I also apply this creativity when it comes to gardening. This is how I came up with the Ring Weeder. If Edward Scissors hands can do it, why cant I?
