Garden Time t.v.

Garden Time is a Portland-based gardening show which airs every Saturday morning (in the Cottage Grove area on KEVU at 8:30 am). Now in their ninth year, each show features information about gardening as well as places to go and things to see.

We were delighted to learn that Garden Time was going to be in Cottage Grove and was interested in doing a clip about the All America City Square and the Garden Club's involvement with the park. Several Garden Club members converged on the park Saturday morning to spiff it up in preparation for the filming (it looked fabulous!).

The Garden Time crew arrived just after 11:30 Monday morning. Produced by Gustin Creative Group (Jeff was behind the lens and Therese assisted behind the scenes) and hosted by William McClenathan and Judy Alleruzzo, the crew was friendly and a joy to talk with before and after the filming.

We attracted a small crowd on the sidewalk and street as filming happened.
