A Visit to My Kitchen: Amy Goldman

Author and gardener Amy Goldman is in my kitchen today, talking about her connection to the garden from farm to table.

Amy Goldman is a passionate gardener and seed saver and a nationally recognized advocate for heirloom fruits and vegetables. She is the author of The Heirloom Tomato: From Garden to Table, now in its third printing. For this book, Amy has trialed 1000 heirloom seeds at her farm, finally winnowing her choices to the 200 heirlooms that are fully described and photographed in the book. Her other books include The Complete Squash, and Melons for the Passionate Grower. She is the chair of the board of Seed Savers Exchange and a frequent guest on such TV programs as The Martha Stewart show and The Victory Garden.
