The naked winner of the week for 02-06-09 is ::drum roll please::

Joe Lamp’l for writing a fantastic book called The Green Gardener’s Guide. This greening and gardening guide teaches readers how to take “simple, significant actions to protect and preserve our planet.” It is a must-read guide for the homeowners around the world who want to live a greener lifestyle.

Joe Lamp'l

Life for homeowners has become complicated. It seems it is so much easier for most of us to do things the way we always have instead of performing simple acts of greening for the planet. Yet Joe Lamp’l, host of the PBS series GardenSmart and DIY Network’s Fresh from the Garden, proves with his book, The Green Gardener’s Guide, that performing simple acts to help keep our planet clean and healthy are easy to do.

While the book focuses on greening most specifically in the garden, I find it a  must for every homeowner who has even the smallest of properties. Green Gardeners GuideMillions of people own homes and all should know the basics of maintaining their property. Joe discusses easy ways homeowners can conserve water, recycle plastic, reuse products, compost food material, reduce chemical usage, and build a  greener community.

Joe’s awesome guide points out ways for the consumer to save money as well. These tips include ideas to increase your home’s cool factor in the summer and how to increase your home’s warmth factor in the winter simply by planting trees and shrubs appropriately on your property. From grasscycling to rain gardening to planting drought tolerant plants; Joe has it all down to a simple and easy to understand science.

Greening your landscape can go a long way towards making a difference for our larger environment. Joe understands that it takes small steps to get there and is setting a remarkable example himself by showing the world how easy it is to do. Find The Green Gardener’s Guide on and make a difference in your community today.

Thank you, Joe, for writing this book and teaching people how to live a greener and healthier lifestyle from the ground up. Your concern and caring are making a difference. You win a pat on the back and a big “Hurrah!” from Shawna Coronado – thank you for working so diligently to bring good things to the world!

  2. Joe Lamp'l says:

    Wow, good thing you can’t see me blushing right now. Thank you Shawna for the wonderful review. I’m honored indeed. I must also say how much I appreciate that you “get it”. You have succinctly stated the essence of this book. It is simple to do significant things to protect and preserve our planet. And thank you for suggesting that this book is for more than ‘gardeners’ because it is. We all share one world and collectively must be responsible for its sustainability for generations to come.
    I proudly accept with honor your “Naked Guy of the Week” award. Many thanks!
    Joe Lamp’l

  3. Hey Joe, Well done and you should be proud. I can’t think of a man I’d rather see naked – metaphorically, of course. I want your book, but will wait to get one autographed!
