Mike will be chatting with Ed Vaccaro, creator of The Hydro Pet. Ed will be stopping by the show to tell us all about how his inventions of DIY watering products can make life a littler easier for you if you own pets or Mike’s favorite, are a chicken owner.

Ingenuity and a passion for plants and animals led Ed to create The Hydro Pet, his first in a series of convenience products for pet-parents and garden-geeks. Ed didn’t know it at the time, but his DIY watering systems in his backyard soon became prototypes for the original Hydro Pet bowls. A neighbor’s pet passing from accidental dehydration gave Ed the inspiration to patent his product and go to market – to give other pet lovers who have watering systems in their yard the kind of convenience he’d been experiencing all along, while helping pets that spend time in the yard live happy, healthy lives.

Having grown up in northern California in the 70’s with parents in the flower business and other family members in the plant industry, Ed developed his passion for gardening and landscaping early in life. From early childhood, Ed was also noted as being a keen animal lover, so much so that he became a member of the famed animal husbandry organization 4-H.

Later earning his degree in hydroponic and solar, Ed began working in the solar industry, but eventually decided to go back to his roots and launched his own plant business. Within a short time, he won accounts with large grocery chains. His success led him to open a store in the San Francisco Flower Market.

Ed supplied hundreds of flower shops in locations throughout California and Nevada. As the 80’s came to a close, Ed once again pivoted and sold his business to a grower who wanted and needed the distribution he’d established. Having discovered his knack for sales and business, Ed dove head-first into the mortgage industry, over time rising to a VP level.

Ed is now putting his unique background and expertise to great use by pursuing his true passions while providing pet and plant lovers with products that make their lives easier.

Tune in on Sunday December 11th, 2016 at 9:00AM at Vegetable Gardening Live to hear from Ed and learn all about DIY watering techniques.
