P. Allen Smith's Garden Home Previous Broadcasts

Kids, Kids and More Kids (Episode #1307H)

KQED Life: Mon, Jul 31, 2017 -- 1:00 PM

Kids and broccoli aren't traditionally a match, but studies show that if you teach children how to grow vegetables, they are more likely to eat it. Learning about their food sources will also lead to healthier lifestyles as they grow up. That's why P. Allen Smith is a big advocate of getting kids in the garden. Plus, meet some kids who are raising chickens in the city and learn how to design a kids room that easily adapts to their changing styles.

The Unusual (Episode #1306H)

KQED Life: Mon, Jul 24, 2017 -- 1:00 PM

We grow accustomed to things we see every day, the things we're comfortable with. But it's a good exercise to go beyond our comfort zones and explore things that are a little unusual. From unique planters, obscure wall hangings or a pizza topped with a fried egg, this episode explores the uncommon and unconventional.

KQED Life: Mon, Jul 10, 2017 -- 1:00 PM

Making A Difference (Episode #1302H)

KQED Life: Sat, Jul 1, 2017 -- 1:00 PM
