Topical Currents

Tips from South Florida Master Gardeners


08/19/15 - Join us for Wednesday’s Topical Currents, when we’re “At Your Service” on South Florida gardening. 

A sub-tropical climate often calls for different tactics than those “up north.”  For example, sandy soils needs organic matter added for best growth.  And September is the best time to start tomatoes. We’ll have Master Gardeners on hand for suggestions . . . and your questions. Guests: John Pipoly, Urban Horticulture and Natural Resources Extension Agent, Broward County Parks and Recreation; and Teri Goldsmith, President, Florida Master Gardeners of Broward County.  That’s Topical Currents “At Your Service” . .. Wednesday at 1pm.

WLRN Radio's Joseph Cooper says producing and hosting Topical Currents is the most rewarding experience of his long radio career, which began at the University of Missouri School of Journalism in the 1970s.
Richard Ives came to WLRN in September 2000 to begin a new career in radio. Born in Fort Lauderdale, his family moved to Long Island, New York, where he grew up. After graduation from college and an unsatisfying stint in a job that, as he puts it, "paid the bills but for which I had no passion" he found himself contemplating a midlife career change after being laid-off.
