Global Breakfast Show & CBC Radio Introduce Three Year Gardener’s Gratitude Journal: Part Diary, Part Personal Growing Guide

Click here to watch the three minute television spot filmed live in Calgary, Alberta.

It’s early in the morning and Donna is standing in front of the Green Screen at Global TV waiting to introduce her latest book!

Doug Dirks interviews us for the drive-home show in the new CBC studios in Calgary, Alberta. We were told later that Chelsie and I have very similar radio voices so the overall effect was tricky. People couldn’t tell who was saying what!

“This is your book. This is your personal growing guide. This is your personal gardening memoir,” horticulturist Donna Balzer told The Homestreach on Wednesday March 15, 2018.

“This is just one line a day for three years, so you can reflect back on what happened last year, the year before. ‘When was that first tomato? What was that first bug? When did I hear a frog?’ All those little things you record, and then they are right at your fingertips,” Balzer said.

Anderson, who is also The Homestretch’s gardening columnist, said gratitude became the book’s underlying theme.

“We are just endlessly grateful for the growing conditions. People like to complain about growing conditions in Canada, but I think we have it pretty good here,” Anderson said.
