Our Guest:

546: Neal Bringe on Creating a New Squash.

Neal is a dedicated listener we invited on the show after learning he has developed a beautiful new variety of squash.  Having a PhD in Food Science, and active in his community and church in Elizabeth CO, Neal works with a mind to educate and provide for his family by creating gardens for produce and butterflies.  His photos have earned him multiple awards, and it was by sharing photos of his recent squash crop that we are able to see just how cool it is to create new varieties in our own gardens. 

Listen in and learn about:

    • Turning his space into a botanical nature sanctuary 
    • Working with native plants and weeds in your garden 
    • Growing in Colorado and overcoming climate challenges 
    • How he came up with a new squash variety 
    • The properties of Christmas Squash and how to use it 
    • Other plants Neal is creating 
    • The evolution of seeds in your yard from year to year 
    • Stewarding your land so it comes alive 
    • Creating an environment for kids to learn in your garden 

As well as: 

His failure – Mowing his lawn and battling weeds instead of treating it like a pasture and letting nature garden for him. 

His success – Helping his children and others learn about nature. 

His drive – Using his gardening knowledge to connect with the Creator and share his learnings.  

His advice – Build houses, plant gardens, create community, and you’ll be blessed.
