In This Episode of the Vegetable Gardening Show

#390: How Food Fraud is Costing You Millions at the Store In this episode of the Vegetable Gardening show, Mike chats with garden expert and author Ben Cullen on how food fraud may be costing society millions in bad food or food that is not one hundred percent of what you are buying.

Food fraud is when the food in the package does not match what is stated on the label. One such popular example is when agriculture companies add in crushed olive leaves with dried herbs.

Ben is going to tell us what food fraud is, some of the common examples that you should look out for in the store and how you can combat being a victim of food fraud.

From there, Ben teaches us his herb drying techniques, gives us some popular gardening trends such as fusion gardening, water wise gardening as well as some of his tips he uses in his own garden.
