John Dromgoole is retiring as host of Gardening Naturally after 38 years. The show began airing in 1981 on NewsRadio KLBJ/Austin, TX, and has since become the longest-running organic gardening talk show in the U.S. Dromgoole has cultivated his reputation as the foremost organic gardening expert in Austin by taking a non-chemical, environmentally sensitive approach to gardening, teaching about protecting the environment while enriching the soil to grow healthier plants.
Gardening Naturally airs Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., and Sundays, 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. The Saturday show is based on Dromgoole, along with co-host Jeff Ferris who joined the show in 2014, answering call-ins from listeners with their questions about problems with trees, shrubs, lawns, flowers, and vegetable gardens. Sunday focuses more on interviews with featured guests who share John’s respect of the planet and vision of gardening naturally.
