Another great thing about podcasting... it enables you to have a worldwide brainstorming session.
I run Wiggly Wigglers - small company that is very keen to promote natural gardening - eco gardening if you prefer. To do this we take many great ideas found within the countryside and farm environment, and adapt them for the garden.
For example, yesterday I saw a presentation about "Catchment Sensitive Farming". This management method reduces field and silt run off (and polution) into watercourses and rivers. Not for gardeners maybe? Well, of course to us gardeners this can be applied to make use of the run off from our homes and garages. We call it Rain Gardening!
We've already sparked a rain gardening conversation in an earlier podcast but this farming presentation will inspire me to podcast about what farmers in Herefordshire are doing to improve their environment. Now, as podcasting is a worldwide medium I am now anticipating the wealth of knowledge and experience that will bounce straight back to me from folk who are miles ahead in this area - probably folk in Australasia who will have pushed the boundaries further, and from whom we can learn without re-inventing the wheel.
