Meet Scott Reil: The Helpful Gardener

I want to do a shout-out to a good friend from Connecticut, Scott Reil. He’s a green industry veteran who has long been bucking stubborn colleagues when it comes to all things organic and sustainable.

Scott has been answering gardeners’ questions at http://www.helpfulgardener.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=15611 since before I knew the word blog existed. I just discovered that he gave our movie a good plug back in June; I wanted to do the same in return.

Part of Scott’s story is that he took over at a very large wholesale nursery for a man who was convinced gardening chemicals were killing him. When that gentleman died of cancer shortly after they met, Scott began his own not-so-quiet crusade.

Check out his posts. His overall plant knowledge is vastly superior to my own. In fact, I challenge you to stump him . . .
