Welcome back for a third season of the podcast! I’m excited to have another season of this podcast to share with y’all! This episode talks about how you can support the podcast (via rating and reviewing the podcast on iTunes, Stitcher, or your favorite podcatcher!), how you can subscribe to the podcast newsletter, foraging safety, and I talk about a variety of gardening resources that you may or may not have heard of.
