Growing the Gift of Connection – ‘High Performance Garden Show’ Focuses on Shared Gardening as a Way to Reconnect After Long Pandemic Lockdowns

PAONIA, Colo., April 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The Living Farm ( officially announced the release of its popular free gardening series, the “High Performance Garden Show,” now in its sixth year. The series features organic gardening professional Lynn Gillespie in an intensive, 33-week adventure that explores growing a high-performance garden using only 128 square feet, less than 15 minutes a day, and Lynn’s special techniques perfected over 35 years of farming. The “High Performance Garden Show” is part of the educational outreach program featured by The Living Farm – an organic farm dedicated to teaching fun and easy farming activities that are equally suited for the beginning urban gardener, homesteader, and pro farmer alike. The series is freely available to anyone who registers online.

“This year I wanted to focus on the importance of gardening as a social activity – a way to connect with others – by getting people back to the earth,” said Lynn. “My ultimate goal is to get multiple generations gardening together, using the simple but highly effective system I created. My father said to make this world a better place than how I found it, so the ‘High Performance Garden Show’ is my way of fulfilling my dad’s request. And the show is far more than just gardening tips. We also talk about a variety of important topics like life, love, death, connection, and commitment. It’s our gift back to the world. I want to show how I can teach anyone to produce plenty of food working just 15 minutes a day, without breaking a sweat. And through the series, we also hope you’ll learn to love gardening as much as we do – then sharing what you’ve learned with others.”

Topics explored in this year’s series include:
