In Search of the Next P.O.T.U.S.: One Woman’s Quest to Fix Washington (In Search of a Popular America)

Judy Frankel shares her incredible gardening knowledge, her expertise in the pesticide and sustainable agriculture industries, and journey to grow  nutritious food for her health and family.

Tell us about yourself.

I grew up on a farm in Pennsylvania believe it or not, and I have the farm genes in my genes…

It was eating those unbelievable tomatoes. Uou just can’t buy those tomatoes in the supermarket. I moved out to California it was because I wanted warm weather all year. Wrong! So when I tried to grow them on a balcony…

When I met my first master gardener.

I took the 10 week course, and passed the test. You have to do a bunch of volunteering. 

Then we moved to Massachusetts. I took it again there…

This zone is completely different. California is all about growing food. The mission is to teach low income families to grow your own. In Massachusetts you can’t do that because their growing season is only 3 months long . You can do it in Montana if you have a greenhouse. If you take your plants inside.
