|UNC-TV’s Almanac Gardener Features Durham Bulls & American Tobacco
Two CBC entities will be featured on the UNC-TV 2013 season of Almanac Gardener. The Durham Bulls and American Tobacco are both getting attention for their award-winning landscaping.
The 2013 season of Almanac Gardener began in April and continues through August. The program host and gardening guru Mike Gray came to the Durham Bulls and American Tobacco to tape interviews and footage for two episodes. Gray, along with the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service at N.C. State’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, “take viewers through the finer points of garden planning, maintenance and blooming innovation.”
Durham Bulls Head Groundskeeper Scott Strickland appears on the program about the Durham Bulls, while Corporate Property Management Manager Tim Grissom did the interview with Gray about American Tobacco.
The two CBC-related programs will air as follows:
- Saturday, May 18 – “Durham Bulls Exceptional Grass”
- Saturday, August 24 – “Urban Landscaping at the American Tobacco Campus”
“Specifically this season, amid the stressful economy, the long-running series focuses on saving your money with informative segments highlighting home vegetable planting and preparing fresh vegetables right from the garden,” reads the UNC-TV description of the program.
Almanac Gardener airs at noon on Saturdays, with an encore presentation at 10:30am on Sundays on UNC-TV.
