#5: Mike Benzinger
This week’s “Conversations with Dr. Cowan and Friends” podcast features Mike Benziger. Mike is the founder of the Benziger Family Winery in Glen Ellen, Calif., where he has farmed his ranch on Sonoma Mountain using the most eco-friendly methods available, including biodynamics, for more than 30 years. In the past several years, Mike has turned his full-time attention to growing vegetables and medicinal plants on his beautiful property. We were thrilled when Mike joined Dr. Cowan’s Garden as one of our key growers; a large portion of his farming activities are now devoted to growing ashitaba, summer savory, and dandelion for our company.
In this conversation, you will learn some of the secrets that make Mike, in my opinion, one of the most precise and successful gardeners I have ever met. We talk in detail about gardening tips, compost, and many other gardening issues that will help you in your own gardening projects.
