Victory Garden's EdibleFeast
Victory Garden takes viewers on a journey across America, traveling from garden to sea, mountains to fields, to learn about fresh local foods, and the people who grow and produce them. Hosted by passionate foodie and TV personality Amy Devers, each episode will also feature the work of 2013 James Beard Award winning filmmaker and chef, Daniel Klein, as he introduces us to gardeners, farmers, and food producers from across the country.

Then head to Paradigm Gardens, where farmer Joel Hitchcock is making homemade insecticide with cayenne pepper and garlic, showing the essential tools every gardener should have, and teaching some basic watering tips.
