This week was a tremendously exciting one for me – I was invited to speak at Google!! (To clarify – YES – I am jumping up and down with excitement!) Google is a wonderful place to explore the concepts of sustainability and garden-to-table organic and green healthy choices. They have cooks for the Googlers – staff members – that focus on healthy cuisine and positive understanding of sustainable good-for-the-earth choices. With that in mind, you can imagine how honored I was to be invited by Google to speak at their facility.
We created a Google+ Hangout with garden experts from around the country to participate in the conversation with me discussing sustainable ideas like water savings, eco-environmental community concerns, inexpensive culinary ideas, as well as sustainable gardening tips and green ideas for everyday gardeners.
Below is a video of the speech and shared discussion with the garden experts. I hope you will watch it and leave a comment. It was SO EXCITING to be invited to speak and lead this discussion on something I am so very passionate about.
Included in the conversation are the following authors and online garden/growing experts (as they appear on the Google+ Hangout screen) —
