Getting it all packed in time for the courier service
Taping it up and off it goes!
When the folks from Oprah called and wanted to feature clips from our homemade production HOMEGROWN REVOLUTION we were like “you can’t be serious.” Of course they said they couldn’t guarantee the piece running but as it got closer to Oprah Earth Day Special the more it seemed likely it would air.
On Tuesday they called and set up a same day courier pick up and delivery – they picked up the produce at 10 am and it was delivered to Chicago by 7 pm the same day! Oprah‘s production crew wanted homegrown produce from the urban farm so they could show it off in studio.
So we picked and packed a few things we had growing here in the garden and shipped it off to Chicago. Some edible flowers, salad mix, bunch of kale, carrots, daikon, french breakfast radish and snow peas. Yep those were our snow peas Oprah was eating live on the show!
Interested it growing varieties that we are growing here on “little patch of Eden?” We offering seeds at FREEDOMSEEDS.org
