Stephen 9.15

Stephen Fitzwater with Gardening the EZ Way with Raised-Beds

Stephen insisted on always having a garden “out back” so his children would grow up with fresh, nutritious vegetables, instead of the processed and sugary foods so prevalent today. Quite by accident, he discovered a prototype for a vinyl planter at a vinyl shop where he was working. Eight incarnations later, a well-designed, long lasting raised-bed planter was born. There was so much interest, he decided to start a business selling raised-bed planters. Thirteen years later, hundreds of happy gardeners all along the Wasatch Front, and dozens of books and classes under his belt, Stephen is stepping onto the stage to talk about raised-bed planters/organic gardening and the main ingredients for success with significantly less effort.  
Stephen Fitzwater will be live on the Design Stage live Fri & Sat!
