Are you up for a Halloween treat?

Yesterday Sheryl Humphrey was a guest on the show that Zora and I were guests on a couple of weeks ago, the fantastic We Dig Plants! We had great fun talking to Carmen and Alice about Greenwoman Magazine and so I was super excited to tune in yesterday and hear Sheryl talk about her amazing book – The Haunted Garden: Death and Transfiguration in the Folklore of Plants.

It was a great show. Fun and informational and perfect for Halloween! I hope you’ll share this listening pleasure (click here to listen) with all your friends for an All Hallow’s Eve gift.

Home of "We Dig Plants" and so many other fabulous programs!
