Outreach Blog of the Garden Writers 2014 Pittsburgh Symposium

“I learned to garden from my father who maintained an eight-acre gentleman’s farm. When I moved to Alaska, I wrote gardening letters to my dad and those became my first gardening column for the local newspaper.

“I always write a column even when I have time off because if I don’t, the newspaper runs my photo with a note that says I’m on vacation for two weeks. That identifies an easy target for burglars.”

Jeff writes the longest running garden column in the US for the Anchorage Daily News. He also hosts The Garden Party radio show and has published books about plant nutrition and soil.
