Mike will be chatting with Amanda Freund of CowPots who will be stopping by the show to tell us how she was able to find a niche market in recycling cow manure into biodegradable pots for the gardening industry.

Amanda is a 3rd generation dairy farmer. She works with 8 members of her family to manage their 3 farm businesses in Connecticut; a dairy farm, a farm market with a greenhouse and garden center and a production facility manufacturing their value added product called CowPots.

These 3 business' working together provide important synergies; the excess nutrients (manure) produced by the farm's dairy cows is turned into value-added, biodegradable pots which are used in the family's garden center as well as shipped nationally. Amanda oversees the marketing of CowPots. She spends a lot of time advocating for farming and agriculture at conferences, at the Capitol and on Twitter as @CowPotsGirl where she features daily life on her dairy farm and often touts the growing benefits of their manure based pots.

Tune in on December 18th, 2016 at 9:00AM at Vegetable Gardening Live to hear from Amanda and learn about all the great things CowPots is doing to help gardeners become more sustainable.
