May 22 on Hallmark’s New Morning (7am), meet some folks who are simplifying their lifestyles…consuming much less and doing the world a big favor in the process, as we explore the theme of “Unplugged.”

:: Behind the scenes note :: Unfortunately the film crew came at a time when the yard was hit with the worst freeze in So Cal history, so the front yard is sadly barren as we cut back and removed plants that succumbed to the cold. So to fill in the segment with tantalizing veggie and garden shots they had to use a few video snippets of our own. 

Good news is that everything’s recovered nicely and the yard’s full and lush again (well, except for around the house where major construction is taking place)
