FM #529 - VFJ Renovations "Empowering with gardening" - 04/22/21 (audio)

FM #529 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 529 in the series. 

This session of the radio show shares my conversation with Jessi and Vinny Fanuele, of VFJ Renovations. We had our conversation outdoor, in their yard, albeit with some traffic and breezy interference but it was good.

I was excited to be in person. We had met virtually almost a year ago (May 2020).  We discussed the second year of their raised garden bed initiative, to empower us with gardening.

The recording runs about 21 minutes, so let’s listen to my conversation with Jessi and Vinny

Disclosure: I did purchase a 2.½ ‘x6’ garden bed last year and as discussed, I am looking forward to using it again this year.

Raised garden beds from VFJrenovations again this year

My father and I are building raised garden beds again this year with the profits going to the Franklin Food Pantry. 

We are only able to make about 35 planters this year and have 2 design options. We've written a letter on our website and was hoping you might be able to publish it on Franklin Matters for us?


Best,
Jessi
