This program is presented by Cathy Brown and Bruce Brown of B.B.Brown's Gardens. Bruce and Cathy come from the television industry where producing, directing, writing, management and sales were part of their day to day lives. 18 years ago they decided to embark on a new adventure. B.B.Brown's Gardens in Clermont, Fl was launched in 1996 as a plant nursery featuring perennials, herbs and Florida natives. One main twist was that their nursery was not using any chemicals, pesticides or herbicides as others were using.

Over the years, it has expanded into a center offering clients garden design and consultation; workshops, National Wildlife Federation Habitat Steward trainings community Giving Gardens, environmental studies, wildlife conservation, and the headquarters for the Florida Scrub-Jay Consortium…whose mission is to save the Florida scrub- jay and its habitat from extinction through preservation, restoration and education.
