Our host Mae Christenson has been a Johnson County Extension Master Gardener since 1997. Gardening has provided her with the opportunities to appreciate the wonders of nature and learned the fact that we cannot outsmart “Mother nature”. Over the years, she has adapted to growing with the flow syncing the gardener’s energy, the microclimate and the plants to have a garden that thrives without a lot of fuss. Gardeners can really make a difference to bring solutions to the many environmental issues we are facing today such as solid waste management, protecting the waterways, the extinctions of beneficial insects and song birds are few examples. Container gardening to Mae is the instant gratification, quick fix and fun ways to play in the garden.
