The Benefits of Duckweed- Podcast now available

August 11, 2014

Tamra Fakhoorian This was a fun interview I did with Mike Podlensy of the Average Person Gardening Show last week. Mike has ordered his first batch of duckweed starter and is going to grow it in his garden now as well.

Quoting his Facebook site:

“In this week’s episode, Mike heads west to the blue grass state of Kentucky and interviews Tamra Fakhoorian, an industry leading expert in the field of duckweed.

Tamra is going to tell us all about duckweed’s uses in food, fuel, water filtration and how many other countries are using duckweed as part of their sustainability.

From there, Tamra is going to take you step by step so you can get started growing duckweed, which species to use, and how to use them to help improve the soil structure in your home vegetable garden.

That, and so much more on this week’s Vegetable Gardening Podcast!

In this episode, here’s what we’ll cover:

-What is duckweed
-Various species of duckweed
-How to grow duckweed
-How to use duckweed in your garden
-International Lemna Association
-Ongoing research about the benefits of Duckweed “

    Very good! You’re going to be famous for something useful instead of for being stupid. Tamra, 1— Kardashians, 0.

    BTW, I found a few Lemna hiding among my Wolffia, picked them out and now I’ve got about 50!

      Sue, didn’t know I was in competition with the Kardashians. I’m ahead- super!
      Hey, you’ve got Lemna. Don’t let your ducks near it. 🙂
