Happy New Year!

As you enter the new year it is good to look back and review where you were when the year started.
A year ago I was leaving the Good Day Lifestyles show after we were cancelled. KPTV had given me a wonderful opportunity when they let me start the program 3 years before. I had started my own company when I was approached by some people in the garden industry to put together a new program to get local gardeners excited about gardening. I was a little hesitant, but I needn’t have worried. The support from viewers has been incredible! The Garden Time show has become the highest rated garden show in the Northwest and a great learning experience for everyone involved. I’m a photographer/producer/director by nature. So running my own company and starting a new show was a real eye-opener.
We are now planning on kicking off the new season of Garden Time in just a few short weeks. I have been contacting sponsors, talking with TV stations and penciling ideas down for this coming year. We have also been critiquing the stories we did this past year. We want this next year to be a great one! One of the big changes is the addition of the Eugene market in March. Gardeners and clients in the Eugene area heard about the show and requested that I take it down there! If you live there you can see it on KEVU starting in March. It is right around the corner.
