#371: How to Improve the Water Quality in Your Own Backyard

In This Episode of the Vegetable Gardening Show

#371: How to Improve the Water Quality in Your Own Backyard In this episode of the Vegetable Gardening show, Mike chats with Lori Athey, Brenna Goggin and Laura Miller of the Delaware Nature Society about how you can improve the quality of water in your own backyard.

Fresh off of their talk at The Philadelphia Flower Show where they taught a class on improving the water quality in your backyard, Lori, Brenna and Laura, come on to share great tips you need to know for water quality in your area.

They will give us a background on The Delaware Nature Society, what they do and why the work they do is so important.

They'll teach us some of the biggest culprits that lead to water contamination and how you may be contributing to this and not even know it.

From there we will learn about what you, as a home gardener can do to help filter your own water through natural means as well as take steps to reduce erosion.

This, and so much more, on this episode of The Vegetable Gardening Show!
