Charlie Nardozzi, host of VPR’s Vermont Garden Journal, answers your questions about helping your garden thrive. Also, "weed dating" helps farmers and gardeners find kindred souls, and a story of how the Long Trail prompted one woman to move to Vermont.
Thousands of us experience the Green Mountains up close every summer with a day on the Long Trail. Many hundreds more spend even more time on the trail, taking a few days to hike and
spending the nights at a shelter along the way. Today, in our series, "The Long Trail: Vermont’s Footpath Through History," we learn what it’s like to overnight on the trail.
VPR’s Jane Lidholm talks with Jonathan Wahl and Leah Hunt, known, on the trail, as Rough and Tumble, two retirees who spend winters in Florida and summers in Vermont, where they can often be found on The Long Trail.
We talk with Green Mountain Club’s Executive Director about the challenges of preserving the Long Trail experience. We also hear from two "End-to-End Mentors" with advice about hiking the trail’s length. And we’ll discover about the pleasures of day-hiking the Long Trail.
