Call it therapy

Keeping on top of everything as best as you can and not let things overwhelm you has been the theme of the past few weeks and my lack of posts and updates reflect that. My apologies to those who follow his humble blog.

I have a few blog entries Id like to write up as so much has happened and so many stories have yet to be shared!

For now, I send out my greetings from Portland, OR where I've attended a horticultural trade show, visited with friends and immersed myself with things I truly love (like this backyard!)

The Launch of "The Next Generation Gardener" on YouTube!!

So, it finally came together!!

The first pilot episode of "The Next Generation Gardener" was posted about a week ago and I was joined by friends, both old and new, to help launch it.

This project came about when Hyejin Yun (my photographer friend who I invited to take photos at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show) wanted to venture doing videos and film production. She wanted to produce an informative video that features me as a young gardener talking about what I do. We decided on a simple subject (container gardening) that aspiring gardeners could take on.

With 2 months of planning, writing the script, Hyejin taking classes and learning about the equipment needed, etc., we filmed everything in one day and then Hyejin went to work  on editing. For a 7 minute clip, it takes so much work! Heck, even 30 second commercials on TV can take much longer. 

Have a watch and let me know what you think. Your feedback will be most welcomed!!

Now check out the blooper reel:
