Let's Grow Stuff

What are the essential tools every gardener needs? How do you build a bee hotel? What's the deal with mulch? These are just a few of the many questions answered by Let's Grow Stuff, a show focused on guiding beginners in the garden. Hosted by horticulturist Ben Futa, the show has more than 20 installments (as of this write-up), each averaging between 3-6 minutes in length. In each episode, Futa, who has experience working in public gardens such as Lurie Garden in Chicago's Millennium Park, homes in on a key aspect of gardening. In some videos, Futa is joined by special guests who share their expertise. For example, the August 31, 2020 episode "Saving Your Seeds," features tips from University of Wisconsin-Madison Greenhouse Learning Community Program Coordinator Tom Bryan on saving today's seeds for tomorrow's crops. Readers hungry for more content can check out the show's accompanying blog, linked near the bottom of the show page under From Our Blog. Let's Grow Stuff is produced by PBS Wisconsin. Readers can view episodes at the link above or on PBS Wisconsin's YouTube channel (linked in the blurb on the right-hand side of the site).
