Because my sister amy head read it. That's fifty four our audio walk. We're could you walk with that. I can cover a lot of ground with account of monte cristo. The last time you were on the podcast it was to talk about your collection theft by finding in which you had many encounters over the years with people on the street and what i enjoy so much in this collection the best of me are they encounters in the airplane. I'm curious now if you're if you're having like a second wave of encounters on the street because you're spending so much time walking around driven by your fit bit around new york. Oh i mean. I'm spending a lot more time on the street but i think because maybe it's because people are wearing masks. We see more disconnected from one. Another i think you know when i did travel during this time it felt so good to be back in an airport so good to be back on an airplane. I felt so at home. And i felt like i back where i you know where i needed to be and backward. I belonged and all of it. You know even the long layover and the crummy hotel. All of it i welcomed it went down for breakfast. I had to go to indiana. And i went downstairs for breakfast and i brought my computer. 'cause i was going to work while at breakfast. Thought you idiot. You can't go breakfast <unk>. Tell with just your computer because there's going to be two. Tv's playing and there's gonna be music. You need your headphones to blot. All that out hired. I forgotten crazy. How much. I forgot just know the nine months that i wasn't allowed to travel. There are so many great airplane stories in this collection. So it's interesting to hear you say that you miss air travel because of your airplane stories sort of exhibit the worst of humanity and thinking. Probably the most obvious one is standing by which is just a classic. You really do still like air travel because to me it feels like you write about it. It brings out the worst in humanity. Remember when i was yelling. And i would watch like johnny carson and so of the comedians would talk about air travel and i thought gee dot they have anything else talk about. But and then as i grew older i realized. Oh that's what they spend all their time right. So that's where. I spent all my time and so that was why i had so many stories about it but i do think it brings out the course in people and also i think there's a real divide between people who travel a lot and people who don't when i went to north carolina couple months ago. I had a long layover in charlotte. And i said to hugh my boyfriend. Who's with me. Why are all these people traveling now. These people who haven't traveled in years and he said how do you know. They haven't traveled in years. I said there suitcases now like they weren't the suitcases with four wheels on them. There were the suitcases with two wheels. You know that people kind of lazily drag behind them see can trip over them right sign now of amateurs and he but because he doesn't travel that often he didn't know what i was talking about. Are there other ways in which airplane travel has changed that that will make its way into your work since corentin so many people are afraid to travel right now. I feel like bending over backwards to clean things. I mean i. It was interesting in north carolina. The governor put a mask mandate in place. Any just put it in place. And i would say maybe sixty percent of the people in the airport wore masks and the other forty war just really defiant expressions and then i traveled like a month later and then it was ninety.

Thanks very much for those lovely reviews and if you haven't left a review for on the legit I hope you're feeling a slightly guilty feeding right now so crack on and get it's it down and thanks to Kaitlin from Edinburgh who got in touch about my episode with Maya Thomas. That was number one to four and Caitlyn says they were filled with absolute joy by my description of plant glossy. His caitlyn writes my mom's an incredible plant person but I never had the bug growing up. She would always points out plants or walks around the garden and I would always roll my eyes in boredom that is until earlier this year when I unexpectedly fell in love with house plants.

And we're going to have a bit of key cow talking about houseplants so yeah this is the first of its kind. I going to call it a podcast swap. Jane ever to you I can you explain to us about on the ledge and how that's GonNa emerged with. The rich. Has podcast today. Well it's a wonderful opportunity to have our listeners. Listen to a podcast and my podcast is weekly. Pool cost per house plants that I've been making taking since February two thousand seventeen and it's basically just my excuse to talk about house plants because nobody else in my family's interested in God. I just decided to start a podcast to provide an outlet for my conversations and also just as a way of being able to email somebody and say. Did you want to have a chat with me about gives Mary and actually have a reason to do it. which is putting on the podcast? So it's just a personal passion that's turned into a bit of a an ongoing thing thing and I have great from here and he's also become a reunites community of listeners. Around the world just great. It's really really good. And and I mean I see you as a bit of a current trend in house plans now. But I mean you've been stalwart kind of a real champion of house plants for years but you know pulling faces the busiest because I started to grow them when I was very young. And obviously I think I've sort of became known ernest houseplant. Lady tonight because of being a whistle looking of previous glasshouses glasshouse supervisor and then subsequently going onto gardeners world when and Jeff Hamilton was the presenter going up to Rutland where he lived. He really wasn't interested in house and so he was really really happy for me to take that over and I guess that's where I really got the sort of title of House Plot Lady House Plant Queen so we are going to start our journey into house plants. I should do some homework and I can see. You've absolutely follow the requests. We've got some beautiful bits of plant material on the table and some very nice photographs on here. Yeah so can you tell me l.. Can we talk a bit about a plan. That inspires your interest into indoor plants. Hopefully we'll see some images of it or enjoy my one because this is just in the mind brain but the one that I wanted to talk about was in Mali. Doc Surgery as a kid and other if you remember they used to be. This is way back. You use those colored lights and they would let your light with your doctor would lie up would earn. And then you'd be called in you put number up and right next to that. was this huge Swiss cheese. Plan the monster delessio which is so trendy now but this was like back in the day this was late nineteen seventies antes and it was just huge and it was going everywhere and they're rare real roots all over the place and I don't think it probably got watered reported more than once in a blue moon but I just sitting there waiting waiting for my doctor's appointment looking at this plant and going. What is it that I come from? Why is that in here? Not Spark Fascination for me and it took require a few years to get my first Swiss cheese plant but it was something that sparked off that interest in indoor plants. And they seem to you when you do see them are ending waiting rooms James. I remember one in the hospital for my hometown. And because they would normally grow up trees on scaling up any kind of structure. They don't need massive pulse pop studio so they can get enormous plants with a small pot roots everywhere and as long as like a corner Selena to or something. Just keep going. And if they've got the ceiling room the leaves get bigger AK- bigger and bigger and I do wonder what not to do with a lot of people who are buying these plans now. And they're buying them as dinky little two foot tall have any conception of what what they're letting themselves in for if they have this plan long-term because they can get monstrously large which is wonderful testing grace about plants. Though isn't it you get the small cutting or you get the small planet. That's just come in fresh. And it's the character that it forms grows older that really fascinates me Aneka so character for how about you. What was your elementary or inspired? Hold on back in the sixties. When I started to collect house falls at dusk us make me sound very old doesn't it? Most of them came to me. As small pieces of succulents CACTI Pelayo names busy leases from other people's Window Sills All they would hand me plants that they had bought an had nearly died. And that's how will my plants came to me so I would get brought along a picture of the candle handle cactus and you can see where it's called the candle cactus because it SORTA got all these candlelight sections it's the plant I still keep now is not Severi Pucci plant. It grows in the winter and my family along the plant we have and they always get it down at Christmas time from my window sill. Because it's very celebration debray shree it produces little flowers on long stalks to like grandson'll and they turned into dandelions. Who is maybe thirty says to me? We need to get the Dan Dhillon plant down waving stunned lines so it's like a Christmas decoration that has to come down in the middle of winter and joins us in the sitting room for a few weeks peaks than it has to go back upstairs again so it's still grow it that to me. It takes me right back things like the Mexican hat ply. They were the social approach. Things that circulated because we didn't have many places to go and Bali them in a funny sort of way garden centers or mass hadn't been invented back then. It was florist shops and private collections. So trying to cast my mind back to early memory. I spent a lot of time with my grandma. If you had a big collection of Palestinians and I was never as a kid taken by lot's of smelly leaves and all red and pink flowers. She grew them for the flowers. They're just wearing very appealing to me but I do remember this higher shelf in her. Greenhouse with these CACTI on and there's one acti- that particular drawn to I thought completely different from all the others and eventually years down the line when she passed away managed to get hold of this cactus which identified as fellow actors. M Roy I am always reminded me of it wasn't in a very good state was nearly brown all the way up and eventually I lost are still quite young kid at the time but then I came across a few years ago and a garden centre it was just in a mixed cactus trae. I was so delighted to see it again and I thought I will have that for my office window so that work because it was grandma. Got Me into plants and that will just be a little bit of my childhood memory. So I wasn't going to bring on the chew because it's quite fierce thing. There's an image talk show you've seen them before but that lovely red spine and quite a Bluey grey body to it. I prefer succulent CACTI in not into CACTI tableau of masses of smaller spines but something like that with the big fat red spines are quite sparse. I just find that quite fficials things. Yeah ed I mean you only need to like walk into a couple of times and I mean my mom would never want to the in house when I was younger. The grandmas because North People have net curtains everywhere. Of course terrible terrible problems with the nets it stuck on everything so but you know down. South is fine because net..

"Thanks so much for inviting me to a home and giving me and delicious homemade hot chocolate to drink which was amazing. Best hot chocolate ever and now. We've just got time for question of the week before. Oh this mega episode closes and he comes from Laura who's got a trouble with a dumb cane even bake here even back here are there's a million pronunciations creations for that one but it's the same thing it's dumb cane a beautiful foliage plot that many people love but it is worth being where with this one that the leaves A little bit toxic. So you don't WanNa be letting your pets or children Grab hold of the leaves of this one if you are reporting it. It's worth putting some gloves on if you have particularly sensitive skin anyway. The problem is this. The plot has yellowing leaves a common story this time of year. This one was bought a couple of months ago. Laura tells me and it started to drop leaves which turn Yellow Gone Pale and then fallen off. She knows applauds pot bounded looking at a picture where I can see. Yes Laura absolutely right. There's a lovely little mesh of routes around the outside of the root ball showing not a great deal of soil. This this plant is definitely looking for new space to grow into so. She's been trying not to over water. I'm not making making sure that it's not sitting in water. But she's finding that these yellowing leaves is still happening. So what's going on well. I think you've hit the nail on the head. Laura the plot is a little bit pot bound and whoa moisture. There is the pulse finding it hard to absorb the moisture this there. And so it's it's Swiss shifting between being waterlogged and I'm being too dry and this is what happens. We need to get a pop lound plot and they just can't regulate the amount of moisture so well because there isn't enough space oil in the pot so you get a situation of almost logged onto dry waterlogged non to dry because the water's just running through or spooling in the bottom. So what what to do. Well I would recommend that you should report this plant. I would say it's probably safe to leave it for another month. Or so Laura till you get not sort of late mid late February The plant's not going to die need beating period and it might cause a bit of stress if you try to party now during thing and the dormant period but you know it depends if this keeps going downhill that they go ahead and report because it's better to report them to lose the plot completely but it would be better to wait until it starts interactive growth again. The rest of the plots are looking pretty healthy. I don't think this is too much problem. I think it can cling on for a bit longer until you're ready to report when you do report. The the usual rules apply only parties into a slightly larger part and tease out those roots. Because otherwise they're just GONNA GONNA end up going round in a circle and then no she gonNa grow into the compost so well but I think that's the problem with this plot. It's really common problem this time of year. Every plot that you have will be developing -veloping few yellowing leaves these foliage plots. Just do that this time of year. There's less resources around. Therefore they got less need for the the energy factories that are there leaves. So they're going to drop a few inefficiency procedure which the plants do. You can understand why it's not something to go to panicky about unless all the leaves start doing that to keep a closer new plots and this dumb cane. I think it should be fine once. He's into a new pot. Laura and I really hope hope that helps. It's a lovely looking plan or pose a picture in the show notes. It's a plant that is relatively easy to coster often times. When you buy one you'll find find that it's been potted up and it will just be bursting out of that part so often times when he first by plant it's worth having a look at the ball seeing what's going having on whether it's possible into the right kind of mix and if it is not what into the right cut mix and it is already rebound then repot straightaway? There's no harm. I've been doing that. The plant is going to be in shock anyway. Moving to your house so your reporting is only GonNa help it if things aren't quite right down below from the beginning so that is the dumb cane in summary. I'm done an episode not plant. Maybe that's one that I should look at such a long list of plants need to cover but thank you for your question. I hope that helps. And if you've got a question for on the ledge you'd know what to do do what lower did send me a lovely detailed message with a Lots of pictures as well as great to on the Ledge podcast at G. L. DOT COM.

"I had one that was literally like like one tiny leaf and it's coming back quite nicely but it's a tricky journey it is and I would say it will say like it's don't be afraid. I think one of the things that when people come towards pensee can feel a bit like Oh God. Don't obviously the most. Houseplants die from over watering supposed onto watering thing last night. It's common thing. But I think in terms of sustainability yet find a good nurse three three former relationship with where the people seem knowledgeable where they can tell you the providence and lance definitely find good sources of reliable information online and talk to friends that. Yeah who who grow themselves. I think also propagation Monte one step too far if you're just starting that it's a great way to gain so And if you want. If you've got a friend who grows prolifically you can find someone line. He might be willing to give you upon even stuff some amazing how swapping going on. Actually there's just some really really a Wonderful House block were loaded swaps happening and that seems to me to be a great way to get a plot. Yeah I think if you you know I always think is if you go by applaud. Don't boy the massive huge mature law Blais young plot because I think like he's less disappointing. If the tiny blonde is Komo shorter. Kind of molding it to your way of living in a big mature plant is already set in its sways. Also just a cheapskate. And I don't want to pay money for the acting. Something that cost two or three quick. You'd like and that I think I think that and also just basic plant hygiene which she can educate yourself really easily on which is just about. If you've got something something that is going to lose at least at some point just making sure that everything is clear and clean and spoils come from and all of that and you. It does come in plastic. Please three plastic tub away and you know make sure that you can keep owes because he he never it might start with one phone hell truth this very true. I was actually think you've doing look at a tweet day of my health plans and then I fought just going to say the the whole of next year I might do that for twenty twenty. I think of being in a house floor today and see how long it takes to get through my house bones like fun. This is going back to something. We're saying early. And this is my grandfather right. ooh right feedbacks and it was about starting starting small and I use east. This open this book. She was going through a really difficult personal time. And it made me feel so much better but mostly just in terms say says everyone who writes gardening funding but exists morally bound. I think to help the beginning. Someone is always beginning. There was also eight embrace bed so he does talk about raises that there is also a debt to the raises for summer so much more accommodating than others and to start with the difficult ones is like taking the bronze turning the setting out for a long journey how lightheartedly absolutely we go. Forward the mind for the pleasurable anticipation eager to discover fresh delights keen to receive new points of interest that every bend of the road brings into feed but when it is forced upon us that the way we have taken leads us not where our hopes set but the each step takes us further from ago in mental view. How different will seems how long series the way back how how void of interest paw? That seems so bright so gays three for the I did and then he says he said this wonderful actually off. I'll find that most of the night was the name. What's his name H. O.? Take a lovely thing to have a beautiful coverage scored on it yet. He was amazing. He was really prolific so he his father was actually born on Anglesey and he went to work on the local the state when he was just a a wee lad and ended up becoming unclean victorious. Had that and then this was a son he went into banking and then decided. That's rubbish change. That's I mean it's happening. Yeah okay so this is what he said his his conclusion conclusion on how to begin well is so for the Novice Raves Grad. But this could be any Dogra is he suggests for the grass to start with both climbing and Dwarf raises the latter for delight the former to captivate the promise of abundant blossom into come so basically when beginning with plants find something delightful spring seat delights. The which is to please someone greatly or a noun on meaning great pleasure that will help you climb out of whatever ending you've got to enjoy and let it eat you into the light and then to start small. The smallest beginnings can lead us to prolific traffic growth and listening. But so lovely. That really sums up my philosophy because I see so many people who saw coming. You're buying that plug because you think is the the cool thing and actually just be driven by what makes your heart sing. What what brings you joy? And that might be like the the most fashionable plan. But if he's bringing you ajoy making you happy then I mean that's why I love the scenario family which is very much in the cold style. Wise these sort of the streptococcus and things uh-huh loved them so I'm going to keep on growing up and again it's I think if you go into a nursery you're gonna you might be doing something completely. Sidley deadly looking at images online. That looks Kinda cool in this life. Seen go in see what you're drawn say because it could be something I'm very. Well thank you so much we.

"But you if you're looking for the green stuff he keyed and it's not even that I'm looking for is it's just a kind of second nature. Yes it is. If it's there it's ingrained in you living whether you start out with houseplants you start with outdoor gardening or however you start I think then it just colors you it makes you make changes you asked you to everything and I have had people who are kind of outdoor Gardner. Say to me as a result I listened to the podcast. They suddenly wake up and go on Indo plots and then they kind of that really coming around to the idea of having plots indoors whereas they thought they couldn't grow them indoors. Endorse well of course you can. You just need to try and go so I think that's that's a really exciting thing about anything to do with plants. Is that once you go quite plant glasses on. Go and I mean houseplants this such an incredible. There's incredible stuff going on your house plans all the time like just amazing stuff which which I love learning about and I think this now I think there's such an acceptance that that knowledge is not is not a bad thing to have that knowledge about the plants. Like you can go Geeky as you like actually and people listen to podcasts. are still like this. May Mean Pathetic Watson. I thought that was going to be the least popular episode. Poseidon podcast botanical Latin. But no people really enjoyed the episode and got out of it and most popular episodes. So it's yeah that's cool. That's I'm really pleased with us the way it is and I think that's it goes to show that when people understand it gives the depth of understanding to something helps you deform a wider relationship with the plant is non. Just how looks is about a relationship like I'm sure we all talk. Twelve say that instead company and some of them I can't say he's and some of the machines and some of them are days. It's that thing that that is what creates a difference. Nothing way it's pretty scary. If he read the papers these days scary if he watched the jeans and we feel like. We're heading be boiling towards the climate crisis. That no one who has actual power is doing anything about the matter how much the rest of us down plastics. We'll do anything like that but I think having that relationship with the exclusive one succulent the ivy growing outside who front door. Who whatever is if? You're able to to see that in a little bit about about that it actually I think shifts who consciousness. That's personally what I feel that. That's an idealistic way of looking at it. But I think starts at home and sometimes it can be so scary to think about what's going on on the other side of the world and how how climate is affecting and much grace waste based and what we're seeing here in the U. K.. Though obviously we're seeing changes here in the And if we can start to just bet in can start to open off. That harvest is an online to sort of forming a relationship. Because that's what it's about it's about it's about getting back and having something that's tactile and and and seeing the benefits of that for the plants and for ourselves then maybe that will have an impact on on something wider. I mean that's how I choose and that's because I have to go to save for the I have to say positive completely and you have to hope that more and more people are gonNA become their consciousness is going to change because we as you say say positive. I think that's where the whole house plants mental health thing comes in. They do if I go into a summer where there's no plots it just doesn't feel quite right to me was was fills a little bit kind of like with Star our looking yes. They're all white not quite not quite yet but I think we we were in the early stages of I think I think in twenty thirty years time we might. We might be very. I don't know I'm getting. I'm getting all existential insurance. I always use this example like remember how people used to be occupied. Turin Yoga like it was very on the margins. It woods very on the fringes and healthy healthy thing and look how mainstream yes. Some people just went into it because it was the trendy anything to do anything to do and that she once they started doing it. They realize this really what I was feeling. Great yes a nurse. Still a large section of that world that is geared Atwood's agent and whatever however anybody gets into something if the truth is there if the benefits can be seen they will be seen yes they say things that used to be quite marginal. I mean I remember a vegetarian Vegan. My husband's vegetarian for twenty years ago to stay in TV but in back for Sim wiles a Nebi literally. They did an evening meal. which is this amazing vegan evening meal and I remember literally? There'll be other people staying there who'd be in tears because it was the first time they'd eaten somebody else's food ever as a Vegan because like you just couldn't go vegan twin coney wasn't it wasn't he likes to cook. It was now the idea of that is ridiculous. Of course anyone who's making can go you go to the supermarket and get a whole race wonderful stuff as it should be so. Yeah it changes possible. It's happening so that's a positive exactly taste it's just not. It's his just being aware of the ways in which we're doing that and I think that's that's a that's a good good way to be and will the rest of it and with feeding them and wish a tightly think amazing. I was cooking a lot of Greek food recently. The job and I realized that most Greek food there is some meat but a lot of great feed is actually beaten to know about because we're all thinking about like the news feed and this and that and Tofu other Da da and how's that thing strains on the environment and stuff and again you don't want to be that person and he's like Dot Com. I've just noticed in quality the quality ability from it. I don't WanNa be that you're gonna be that person but also kind of like a you know it's we can't afford to turn a blind eye to another thing and I think like you said it's easy for us and all kind of bubbles to think things about it but you you just never know. I think you have to do what you're passionate about. And they can bring people along with the just to finish if somebody gene listening to this into house plots but they're just thinking I don't really know where to go with this whole sustainability thing in this whole plot helping what other kind of the key things that people the three things that people should be doing now to kind of get themselves on the right haw in terms of sustainability. I think I think listening to your podcasts. Obviously issues the few episodes. You've done sustainability. I think next year when the plot healthy scheme same rolls out that will be something to that will be something facial and tactile and people can sort of key into you can look at the Pont Health Portal Online. It hasn't got loads of specific things about houseplants at the moment. But what I do more than ordering a plants online. I know there are some really eighty reputable brilliant people online setting house plants. But I think of it so I house plot go and find a good mastery. You would talk to a friend who was growing in house plants and has done so quite successfully and talk about. Just how did they get into it. What simple said don't it doesn't have to be? The I speak for stunning. Incredible is tied. I remember on the air in the neck. Kill that many any of those parts of people killing the one the one they sell in the folio with the huge massive leaves number of those. I see on people's feeds and unlike all God that you've just pulled the happened it's going to be dead within six months. It's really hard Plod. It makes me cry on actually say I killed my my mom who is just amazing. Do things that she did some how much they all too often people think actually like they can literally be cut down to the ground and then if you pay.

"As easily walk into starbucks and ask them again. Oh Oh my gosh yes really knowledgeable plots person. I'm like okay. You're going to be a wild now talking to me and helping me out. Yes but I really hope happens in this whole brexit scenario. We're in right now. Why we hope happens as good? Consequences exclusive whatever's going to go down. Is that there is some opening up of British. There's new blood coming into the nursery industry. Growing House in this country would not be amazing if we increase lumber production nurseries absolutely and I feel like that across the board in times of could dream where I'm like a market towns gonna come back to being towns and often east audion where I lived in Scotland. It's filled it's very rich. Agricultural area. Traditionally as Combine Harvester came from the the soil is like an. It's almost purple color useful because it's a you've got three volcanic plugs up. Mineral rich in commercial farming has done. Its best but it's also filled with because it was rich agriculturally it was you know you have these old estates and with a walled gardens. Basically I start to see some really phenomenal stuff when I say that was a pious botanical. Anyone everyone wants to check them out. Please do their amazing holiday respiratory Adan. They ought to form art students since he met whilst working in a Florida florist and Adam and I were kind of shocked by the amount of flowers that were coming in lots of two. That's coming from uh-huh and all these other places and they thought well would have on eight thousand species anyway now right now that very successful run out. We'll we'll garden one of these garden. They have their office and they create the dangerous grow all these like negative but will say yes some other flowers. But it's all it's all in that I need to know I've had friends. He got married. Just go and pick up a couple of buckets of flowers and do the decorations and things like that say is starting to happen in another garden. Neko t yeah underneath. These won't Garden's soil is amazing because it was just a not being used for great things for a long time but when they were used they used to use the stores manure and things like that so they haven't been touched for a long time so there's an there are so many will gardens in this country are not being used to utilize. So that's another way of bringing creating ideas around that and being able to. I think also I'd get get twitchy. Is this whole thing of I have some listeners. He live in urban areas and they can't access ray water for certain applause growing. They can't of just how to question the listener. Who has all these leaves that for coming to her covered porch that she wants to do something with and I'm like well? You really need to like band Komo News but you haven't got anywhere to store it so there's just like a wish that there was community. Composting Lily resources full in urban areas to be able to go. Oh okay. Can I get some rain water from somewhere. I don't know how these things work. I don't know what it would look like but I. I think where we need more outlets for people who are in urban areas. Who are catching onto this whole? I want to be nurturing plods allowing them to have outlet and they're all obviously lots of community schemes with politicking. Really bored with that. I think we do. I think you're absolutely right. There's some great things going on in London and having been away. Okay from the city for six years I have to say it. The change is incredible and the thirst for knowledge and be wanting to know about things and wanting to get involved in things but there are some brilliant brilliant schemes in each bar and each bar does contain greenspace. That's that's wonderful. Yeah it's just making that more accessible and I think also having bar councils supporting that in some way it's it's great that people can stop these schemes but then a lot depends on funding and being organized as we know as soon as you got into another environment people are really basically heads we will and it's it's just finding the right people and the right. Tell me about unless I helped to lead in a very minor way. Help to run this herb garden which is a very nice roundabout but he's on around about. We have volunteers. Dante's immediate have made it at sessions and people often women. Doing that won't Pasta Go. Oh and they seem like the council funds it all like no oh it belongs to the county gave it took to us. Basically to May Dane was just done by volunteers. Lots of people lots of lots of people still. I don't know about it and you're trying to say yes. You can come and pick things and to educate people but it's it's hard. It's an up hill struggle to get people to to come help and so on but you know that's that's life. Is there anything you do volunteering. Honestly GonNa be things have to stop. I've Seen Marsin the difference with kids. Yes you hold it then you get hold of. The kids is so true freely. One that they've really really he wants to know and they they get so into it. I've got iced ten years that I remember being a kid and you just want to be soon as you're outside you're just nine there's a whole world to explore know everyone has access to space and I appreciate that an aw aw aw groups in London that are trying to to fix that. I did smart recently with company could cultivate and they go into into state schools across London. They also work at Chelsea. Physic- take these wonderful workshops. Kid they worked with kindergarten age all the way to solve four or five and they do teaching about nature but through storytelling. And I think it's such a wonderful the thing and they try and get the kids into some greenspace at once a week and got the hands and soil and learning about. This is the see. What do we need for seeds to grow and you you just said that there is that and the kids remember stuffy nose like you need soil and you? Yeah no I know. It's amazing what they take in isn't it really is once you've got that sort of engrained in them for young age even if they forget it Olympia in their teenage years and twenties. Yeah they will come back to it and I think is ties the crucial thing. I love the whole a love when kids are like. Oh Yeah. That's the sound so plot it's like I'm so pleased that you that's amazing. You recognize that like taking. I think is like putting on a pair of like plant losses. Horse's glasses on you'll be walking down the road you'd be going. Oh Wow look at that. You know that I don't know gallant soldier or some weirdly named we'd all look at well that's an avocado tree that somebody's growing Lundin mazing but most people don't have flocked losses on everywhere. I'm going to somebody's house. I'm like checking out. What they might be nothing? But I'm always looking for people interesting plots and looking in like Barber's shop windows where there's some kind of weird plot because I've got the plot glasses on auto guess. I thought that when I left London I was like I. Hi and leaving your goodbye lizzy on the country. Dial off and life happens and then I'm back here and I saw recalled. How how's this going to be what it's going to be like my whole experience? London is different is I spent mm time working with plants. Learning power plants. I can't walk anywhere now without you even if I walk down a street whether some trees you it just it could be London planes or whatever. I'm like the reefs of these trees like underneath the concrete right now. I'm you know it's a whole different way and then just nine about weeds. Which is wonderful thing about seventy nine hundred that we go to? We'd Popeye because I mean I just I just love this of. I think there's just so many awesome weeds that I could just talk about the past names like so many ways that kids play with light sticky. Willy yes tyson hub that yes yeah an and being a I live near the river so I'm really lucky because there's a whole lot of mother stuff going on there as well.

"Some point and sleep. Creativity is out of necessity. We the only hard the period of say and then combines luxury of this story away culture of not having to store things of not having grandparents parents generation didn't have that luxury of what they were doing and actually incidentally I'm sure the United States but the second diet in the U. K.. Is One of the most. The study does around the world so healthy just mind the powdered eggs in the national league because people will grind people want eating that much me and they weren't having that much sugar and what they were having with the cheaper carts and everything was being stretched long beat full orchards. In this country everyone was doing and I. I think that goes back to the soil. It's kind of graceful Saku. But I'm completely with the I think it's the I don't think the knowledge has been lost. It's just been sort of pushed to the side terms of this kind of a false economy enemy basically because everything's being dumped the conveniences say and so but we live in a really time for society. So actually what. We're compromising on working walking in a state school in happening. Actually as a coke and it was mean and other key and we working for about three hundred and sixty students. Every game I was part of a scheme of healthy eating and the kids how to garden. So they grow Ri Bob and things like that we make it into crumble so they could see that and and we were doing a lot with vegetables and trying to keep the costs down and actually they got rid of that scheme really sadly because because of cost cutting and education uh-huh and at the same time what was happening is that more standardized testing and say that cutting down the dining times eating as well and then he's Nate's this myth that like you know we can all works. You have all the hours in the day to what whack doc and then we can get ready. Made meals go home. And that's that's convenience but it's you knew something in this is I think probably comes back to the house plants and gardening and things like that. It's about nurturing something about caring for something about taking a bit of time to be considered and slow down and I think that's paw aw the rise to talk to Katherine who was on the panel version of history and we talked about this because I was when I was prepared for this tool at the house festival. I was just sort of guide through history and like The Times in history where house plants were really re popular in the first time was obviously during the Victorian which was of the expansion of the Empire that was a status thing. It was also with the background at the industrial revolution to find trees leaving leaving the land. We will mainly an agricultural society in coming into the the city and that message explosion of this fascination with nature and going on saying on the dressing Oh my gosh the madness missile. The flower pressing creating. You are in Hungarian Seni- And and I think what we're in now is the midst of a digital revolution on. It's moving much much faster than we are evolving to keep up with the source of you know quite scary thing about it and that people off eating. I'm eating bugs out in the rest of it and I just find it interesting that again then we see the strive towards everything back towards nature and that star nature is it's a comforter and it's it's a wonderful thing that that is is the way it's just making sure that it's not turned into into commodity at the same time. Yes I think there's a there is a joy to saying taking take bit of the out of your garden or just a box standard Claude The cold continues taking plug and just nurturing trigger and and don't make your first house plant of red very gated because like you probably don't have the skill set yet. Do you probably don't understand enough to the cough to that plant and it's really nice that you've got the power and money to go out and boy that straight trey away but actually like sounds because let's say somebody what am I talking about but actually even say fought for disappointment women and it's going to die or you're going to get that expensive cutting and because you so desperate imported from somebody used not following best practices this is going to die. And then then what you're GonNa do you've lost your money. started out with something of it more and also oh so your confidence and like Oh. We'll I I remember Susan early. Two thousand one two thousand two and a half in the place that got it really was like Arcadia yes and they just die within minutes and and I just thought on just rubbish just really robust growing things. I'm never going to try again when I started again. The only thing I felt safe with with with divy scholars just died within the self southern. IBM It wasn't it wasn't yeah you need to tell Yup and I think that that journey of discovery papows people go with it by going the rare I but I mean that's what our forefathers would have gone through that that's journey off a failure and getting things roll on the white and learning how things there's just let less of a risk like we're not nothing's going to happen if we cannot help loans but you know if your crop failed then you're in daas aches so I I think that's that's part of the journey. Also we've got access to this huge massive information. I guess what noise me those that this poor information out there. You know if you Google applause you just come up with all these ridiculous articles that don't really tell you they're just numerous numerous articles saying exactly the same wrong thing. So that's kind of depressing but I do think when like going back to the plot healthy scheme verde I'd I'd and it's GonNa be like logo. They're going to introduce that Chelsea. I think the thing that's going to convey that and it would be something to osc defer and let the I think that what dot comes with a standard of the people that are going to have that whether it's in my shop so wall with the Nice freeze or whatever whether that is also a sign. She that these are people that know about plants. And we'll be able to tell you the best way in the garden center. I worked and she even though it was professional garden. Censoring starting things like in terms of wastage plastic. That comes in and I thought stuff these were people actually. They didn't know about lots as well. So I think is about supporting gardens and it says if Enduring Good Garden Center and they've been there for a long time. There's a reason for that instead of looking something often like we used to have people come in be like with that. I'm I'm going miss at home. The one guy. He grinned car day from Avocado seed and it was like two and a half meters tool. It was getting too big for his he. We were like well And then another lady who came in with pictures from her lot men and I I think she growing up in the Ukraine but being over here for sort of sixty years and then she was like I found. This can bring some in to show you but I think I can eat it but I'm not sure and it was actually. It was actually inedible. We'd but just one that we don't necessarily eat here with a eat more in eastern European countries and not with great but people felt that they could come in that relationship and I think you know because online is so much easier and we've just think it's so simple but part hov impossible. Et with the cost that you're communicating with people. You owe critters no nothing better than an actual purse asking an actual person that is is very very true and you know you always get lots of you tend to get an answer that way that is personalized to you. And your what you're actually asking as opposed to searching achieve something online and you get the book standard on so yeah and that is a great thing is a great resource to be able to go to those places and asked the most depressing when you go into a Golden Center ultra help and make they they know nothing they let me just interrupt was really depressing.

Ah Yes see nights thing about it but if you can just even if it's a little suicide moments up in the most hollow else will escape the steam but they sort of found suffering so it's you feel kind of very thrifty in very pleased myself villages because I go in this market and I look at the prices of these herbal tea by. I'm thinking bloody hell. I wouldn't pay four quit for that and I think I don't mean to buy a reason why I would ever buy any of these because I'm and I'm not saying the amazing her God at all I have. Fortunately I helped run a community hub. God's ending I don't have is usually in that again. You don't need a lot of different things but actually it's an amazing source. Why would I spend money on those bags absolutely included? I realized I had I was with someone the other day and they said Oh I've I was just pulled out my stage plan and chocolate because it's just it was too big it was to processing might be used at the table allows when why could we tell you that he played just devastated. And that's the thing because people people think sage will I use it with a pool sometime and it's great. It's great food. Digesting fats is wonderful but again. That's this whole. Yeah skype Fred and say well I tried to do with the cooking in its is to try and bring the together looking at historical cookery. Books switch are actually based on the very fast hubbell's but wherever you look at the very first cookery books they all hate the herbals. Some by people died righties and things like that right right so that was sort of the wasn't such a break. Everything food as medicine medicine as it was literally. Yeah that's so that's this is such a major message isn't it. I mean that's you could you could. We could go about that for a whole whole day where I think it's it's also. There's this crossover between between indoors and outdoors and loss of listeners. Adjoined to grow things like lavender and Rosemary indoors and I'm always kind of negative about about that like he's not going to work. It's going to die but I didn't know what you'll take on that whether it's kind of like well you can bring those things in for beer and enjoy them but ultimately they are happier outside. I am kind of with you on that thing. Even if he goes window ledge can sit them on outside than inside Ed Hardy to our climate and they do better outside and I think when you grow hard if you can even if it's a sort of the that's supposed supposed to be Graham quite big bastrop seen I really one talking about Asu Sephardi perennial woody type year. If you think about how much you're using. I use a lot of the growing them. In tiny little parts inside is not going to work. I'm very lucky because I've got a tiny flat reef reef outside so I can put things on absolute mass at the moment as the time of year when everything just as looks horrendous. But but it's one of those Internet Allegri lands. He was on the panel plot. How stressful we talked about? Because she's a she's an organic gotTa Feed Garage Garden in Suffolk. And we've talked quite a lot of just going to have to call. I Bob Symbol. Yes another call which has been a really no but it hasn't been up to know what suddenly just make. Maybe yeah again I have. I have a cold that lasts about day and then I'll say this age H.. Kicks in and it seems to be particularly bad this winter. And if it's because it's because he's been so wet but normally don't get many. Colds is probably actually more more tired. This winter will have been in previous. Hey we adly earning systems having to find out what it is but anyway mode boating voting. Sorry that's frustrating. Particularly cough to agree Leah. We've talked quite a bit about. Can we ups inside right and you know. There's a lot of decide for Mike Crops and things like that but even then and we went to Work Anna when she was a psycho farmhouse. And that's what I see how it goes. No I felt like if I want to be in the kitchen I need tonight car thing which I think I have a plan lab at the heat in the future. All these acts will be trained partly in the kitchen and partly in the garden because I think it was stuff wastage actually if people understand the amount of there's this false wobble isn't there between food and gardening ee in journalism very much so we always really case against in when I was working guardian but again it's just really really prevalent. But why go if you actually a chef if you understand how to gross stuff then it really opens up your horizons in terms of literally from flavors to how we cook with that because something that's going for is going to taste something completely different from just typing it from any sort of supply of UC. We're seeing a lot of everything seasonal wealth for those who do the ones the chefs that have really been chomping on for a long time and not dot hospital two three down. But it's it's for me it's just a kind of it's a no brainer. Also because when you walk in the garden and the skills a quite similar year doing doing very similar things a lot of it can be quite repetitive intensive you might be chopping or you might be planting seeds in a production kitchen garden as well as AH. It's hard work. It's hard work and if there's an understanding of how much is taken to grow that you're not going to be just just throw anything away. Yeah so it's interesting. I worked for few days. I was very lucky. See Guessing Experience River cafe. imes uh-huh how that was set up by Rice was kind of phenomenal anyway. Just from so many different points of view you know. They've never had less than fifty women in the kitchen. Itching and I think my first day there I think it was like eighty percent on i. I got sold off because I was snapping asparagus and he was like I know there's there's an actual break but you can actually break. Anyone who snapped as far seems Zombie ends. Nothing goes to waste nothing and it's the same. I trained about him alone island and it's on one hundred Acre farm and in the kitchen. You have these buckets everywhere. Loads of hands. These are the best at attends new so that providing us with food delicious cook with every day on. We're giving them any food. But even the peelings go. Oh into making Johnson Chinese and other things like literally nothing goes to waste and boy if you get caught trying to throw anything. I feel like this whole I think is true of House. Plants is true of gardening cooking. That there's this whole kind of amazing amazing universe of knowledge that our ancestors had I'm not talking about way back at even just our grandparents. The somehow is kind of being some. Some people are carrying that on this whole sort of fount of information. They lost fifty years clinic. We've kind of lost lots of people people of lost and the I sometimes when I'm talking to people I kind of feel freak. The I know how to these Amtrak saying. Hey I know how to pick wolfing. I feel like I wished that everyone music and I feel like a bit of initiate Angeles going. You need to let me go. Well you need to learn how to propagate house explodes because it just feels like comey pokemon. This going on people come like life to know how to do this stuff. That's why again my husband loves it me because I'm kind of I'm always like feeding Lakhani to improve myself and get more skills But I think that's like because I think they're gonNA come in useful at.

"Can you have. Of course you have to pay money to go but that money generally goes to research and upkeep and you can learn about those plants and in theory specific curated atmosphere for that and I think that particular things like Places like Chelsea Physic- cards awesome that they rely on people coming in and saying the lone star in the Gloss House Style and all the fans and different plants wall over the world in a four four eighty two states and the secret garden in London and I feel like not enough. People know about the one that they do that. And so you know it's it's that thing of you don't want to be the down on anyone's been the Athens then you you found green fingers but again and I know you've talked a lot about propagation and people getting together and and social networking being online being a great form for that common. Propagate we can share things like that but I I do think that again there is that risk of occasionally some people being a bit of a gold rush. Isn't it I think that's the thing it's it's this feeling of an I. I particularly it just seems to be this kind of fever and my look of plants that somebody's going absolutely crazy over and importing from Thailand and going to the effort of getting five sanitary certificate which costs extra money. So you approach to them for doing that but the plot go. I know that it's really bad but I think you could probably boys'll missile thing just as beautiful and just as interesting quite cheaply wouldn't be that species but it's that thing of is red therefore must have it armed kind of saying well. This is a beautiful blob. I can get easily and I'm going to grow. I mean maybe a being really unfair to the arrowhead crowd. I I just worry that this this desire for rarity sends people off on a bit of a hunt that is not necessarily very productive for who go through the whole `ISMs of Seattle shipping stuff way across the world and paying hang a lot of money for something which oftentimes again with any gold rush. There's bad practice happenings and people buying cuttings. That don't have a node on going to grow. And the all the A so why go so much wide variation that they're gonNa just gonNA suffer and die because they're just not viable so it's not benefiting anyone really in the long term. It's quite terrifying in a way. It's interesting isn't it because I think obviously our work with phase as I'm I'm a private chef is doing my allergy which I tried to sue the fees the two together and I think if you look at how food has suit evolved in particular Twentieth Century and Early Twentieth Century. Was this trend toward suddenly Chiba cuts of meat. Um instead of Venus grade lamb and things like that and locally read things and I think it's a lot of that was to do with the town heritage edge and learning about the history of our think a what could be interesting is is making the history of more plants that are maybe not strictly native. Maybe they've been here. You know they were bought hair a couple of hundred years ago but also some of our native plots Ivy and that's a really sort of interesting historical evidence around Ivy and how we used particularly in light. Ah I'm agent things. Even before that there was them I think it was an iron age or Bronze Age out in to get somewhere in Howard show In the eighties they did a study of the pollen that they found the missiles and I think overwhelmingly eighty seven percent of the pulling they found was ivy pulling and they don't quite know why they don't know whether they were burning inside in the winter to feed the cattle. Oh which they don't normally eat the you know if I the particular can be poisonous is used as medicine. It's easier to cough medicine but I wouldn't recommend commend. Everyone can make you sick but if you go to good health food store they usually because there but the just the evidence of that we've had this tradition of you need the victorians used to bring the inside and decorate a Christmas evergreen thing Minnesota always going. It's also known as diamorphine so you have the the sort of five pronged smaller leaves the Melissa get Spiga. Agah cuts reaches the sunlight. Move because it's a forest creep. I Love I think I'm Gonna I think is amazing. I love the fact that you get this amazing you know you're talking about you know juvenile foliage in the old. I mean Look I-i've does exactly the same thing that's people that we he realized that I these incredible I. Have you got growing looking well there. Because I've tried to grow indoors and don't doesn't like it. They might just be me but I have to say anything to bring indoors though it is and it's tempting because it's there and it's it's all around us a wine or have if some endurance and my my A friend of mine old friend of mine much of the friend of mine. She's in his seventies but she decorates great house in every Christmas lights guys outside and brings in and you know I never know abundance of Ivy and yet spend money going in writing. We go to Florida and things like that which is show US tonight. Let's they love to go to Mexico one day and see that is growing in. That would be amazing. We'll be maisy weakness shoes the tree like yeah I would love to but I just want one in my house. That's just my thing.

I I met my Thomas. At the garden. Museums Houseplant Festival last year when she was part of of a panel discussion about plants. Maya is a cook writer and herbology. She's worked in urban kitchen gardens across the UK including the Chelsea visit garden and she runs herbal workshops around the country. You can find online at the modern herbal DOT COM and after hearing speak on you. I'd I love to have a longer chat with my own so I headed down to meet her at her London home before Christmas and we chatted boy. Did we chat the resulting being interview is wide-ranging to say the least we cover everything from plot health to herbs to buy weeds wonderful. We stay quite a long way from house those plants but I heard that all of you will enjoy listening in on a chat between two plenty people. Do check out the show notes as you. Listen at Jane Perot Dot Com. Because there's lots of links in there to the things we talk about for more information about the don't risk it campaign which is a UK government campaign to encourage people not to bring plot material back from overseas either linked to a piece. I wrote about the community. Herb Garden I mentioned in this interview decided to run this whole interview. which is about an hour long in one big chunk so make make yourself a competency settled down and have a listen? I mean herbs her amazing people. So I'm always amazed by how little people understand where things come approach making something and he's got some thing in it and sometimes ought not thinking I don't know where this comes from or how it so how how a- and then it's fascinating to look that stuff up like would it may sound looking at Mason was like wow. That's my mind. I can't believe what macy's he is an auditor. I didn't actually get to the point of looking at where they grow. May so how. It is Louisiana well a lot because it's outsor- nutmeg. So yeah yeah a if you think back to the spice trays and basically a consistent say this theory to my dad. The whole economic system Miss Basically based on the trade of plants. That's what it is last more all traitors being about back in the Medieval Times four Cardamon was the same cost as like a labor is really solid underneath stretches across a across the world doesn't it. I mean cotton in America slavery. I mean we into interesting enough. The Chelsea visit Gods and if you go back they got the original seeds that became like the most grown cotton places like Virginia sent by Chelsea Garden Hike off Oh out to America and it was it it was yeah. So it's it's it's a whole history loans oral history and. I think that it's in the same way that we have become mccombe lake. Saif fakest on how and the providence of our food where it's coming from How is it got a yeah? We're all being slightly more ethical than off on this markets and we WANNA be interacting with juices and how was it growing pesticides you know. I think in the same way we need to be curious about our house plants and things that we're bringing into our home and it's not possible forever thing likely and when not we can't go back in time time and particularly in the K. because we're a country that has been formulated on the fact that we had an empire that we traded in all these places quiet unhealthy way. But I think that having as possible history. It's great that you can come to the K.. And all sorts of foods and have all sorts of people living here. That's amazing it's just being we've all we're all culpable culpable room responsible. And I think just as individuals we have a if we can start to ask questions about and nothing's going to be perfect when all Tonight we're not all going to stop using plastic overnight but if we can start awesome the right questions that's worth deffers. Campaign healthy comes in also spence. Who is chief? It's like chief plant health officer Sir and department director of plants of be health and varieties and see my gosh okay. So she plays she has had I. Twitter handle is something like Plot chief yeah. That's good growth. I liked it with half a chief of plants in the U. K.. Chief of flu we the closest we need that person on you know she de recognized it because we've at least you know we've got a food as it. She's me that it's very important that we're starting to protect the native species like and things like that from diseases and Kinda change. Obviously as our climate was our way being confronted with new diseases all the time and earnings. And if you think about it. It's a logistical nightmare. And it's not just the plants that a that a hosting some of these past six also things. It's like crates the wooden crates that come in they can hold a particular past come in the woods. She said something nothing. Brilliant and you might have to talk to her about this to get it. Specifically for Football Tussle football stadiums that heated from underneath. So you can't dispute is but obviously they have to change the tough by the Iraqi today. You can't despite dot tough just any which way because of the way that it's heated it can actually create a breeding ground to this puffing the particular bacteria in the soil so it has to be disposed of in a very specific way. Okay so so things like that that we wouldn't even think about this tough coming from. And how can we guarantee is I think the interest is this. He's as you say. The situation is complex. There's a lot going on here. And yet I often see quite a blase attitude amongst houseplant. People to to the idea that maybe we should be a little bit careful about where we're getting stuff from often on facebook groups on saying oh I'm going to the Canary Mehran on hold on a minute. Bring back all these things and then people going. Maybe that's not a very good idea and then other people are going to stop being so negative like more not being negative just for the. It's like being negative but actually because actually this is a serious issue that you know and I think there's a lack of this sort of blase attitude possibly based I'm sure on just just a lack of information by people I think it's the DIS something that they've done. I think they had A. They don't risk campaign than maybe some people saw an report was targeted to people that people going away and thinking. Oh what loves to join us at home and not thinking of the consequences of of. Aw that isn't at the moment any legal procedure to stop people coming in with with things like that but there will be nothing can introduce that one of the things that I sort of believe in vehemently with the poor thing botanic gardens in this country and I think thank you know the danger of having something that has essentially become a trend with which is great because anyway people get concussions plants. I think it's really and if they find benefit from that great but the thing with trends is that you can there's a section of people that will then want wasn't a slightly different different. I want something that's slightly more exotic so I'm GonNa take a bit of a risk in trying to get the UN it's not just individuals taking risks. It could be you know shots and things like that to try to get something new in that they can then get their sales up so then they end up taking risks because those those plants are getting in we right and how that being harvested we whether coming from is there legitimate nurseries that breeding these plants. They which is being taken from the wild. We didn't know any of that. And I think you know the reason that we have not the reason we have to turn it gardens but one of the benefits benefits of having botanic gardens is that you can go into a space where they have plants from all over the world. Where they're doing research into those plants the properties they might contain medicines or how they helped to textile trade or something like that and plant collectors from the eighteenth and nineteenth at century bringing? Nice back where you can go you.

"And so you bring up a really good point when you talk about family, because family, and firefighter really go hand in hand. And so when we talk about recruiting people who are like us, we want us. We're really deep on tradition and culture in the fire service. Do they learn that in your organization? Absolutely. We not only get we not only have discussions about it, but we provide them history, the history of the, the fire traditions, the fire service, but also put them out into and help them to make context for ride alongs so they can get into the fire station so they can understand the day in the life and what those family. That feeling of family truly is what we mean by that. So now this is the the fire recruitment side of it. But really your organization's of five oh, one C, three Savelli women's societies. Five three does so much more in the community from youth camps to various fundraisers, you have one of your biggest fundraisers of the year coming up, right? Correct. So this will be our third annual top golf golf tournament. Unlike traditional golf tournament, where you go out and you get into cart and you and you play around of golf for several hours. This is at top golf. If you haven't been in an amazing opportunity to go in sit and play golf off of a balcony, meet friends. Enjoy the time together with your fire. Family, your regular family that tournament is June night coming up in the next. Several weeks starts at five PM. We have the opportunity to not only have single players, you can sign up to be just a single player. And we will assign you to obey or team of six. You can also sign up as a team. We have a lot of engine companies fire houses that come together and their entire firehouse, or our husbands, and wives will come out and play together a team or a baseball or bay price for six members is four hundred fifty dollars each of those gives you three hours of golf play gives you a part of a buffet dinner, drink coupon shirt and then social hour for that. So you say four hundred fifty dollars, and I think that might raise someone's eyebrows that when you talk about all the things that you get you actually get a you get a better deal for putting in a team of six eighty dollars per person. Otherwise, so you're catching a break, but go ahead and tell the listeners again what does four hundred fifty dollars get you. So the, the price of your admission of the price of your team gets you three route three hours of golf play. We, we secure the top floor of top golfer the three hours three hours of golf play. You get a dinner buffet that that we. We provide, as well as a sponsor, t shirt or t shirt for the for the event, as well as a drink ticket. So a lot of things that are included with that your biggest fundraiser, where does some of this money go, what is it fund? So this is our biggest fundraiser for our scholarship programs. We not only have a scholarship for. A that the camps that are happening throughout the valley, so we have upcoming camps for camp Franklin, which is the police and fire high school. We, we sponsor the camp for hundred girls for coming in to high school. It's its eighth grade through through junior year, but we also work with campus fire out in Mesa and can't fury down to sawn, but also a scholarship for a graduating senior that is going off to college, and that's given by the United Phoenix firefighter association. And we just actually presented that one that one the this year just went to Maya Thomas. Now, he's a graduate of sunny slope headed to any you. I thought the most interesting piece of that is that they actually require them to write a paper on a given topic. This topic was cancer prevention, chancer. It is a big topic version in the fire service. We're seeing more and more of our firefighters that are being affected by cancer, and we are doing the best we can in terms of preventing that, but it is a big topic for firefighters in their families. So where if somebody wants more information on the top Gulf of it, whether they want to play.

I did not degree. I didn't create it and that was Sarah Watson created that character and that they namic and it's so beautiful and I love it so much. And the thing that I love about a. Jacqueline Jane is just the way that it's different from anything that you've ever seen before and that it. It goes against the trope of just the devil worst. Yeah, and the bitchy boss and like we've all had horrible, horrible bosses in the, but then like you don't see the the boss, actually a mentor in who wants to be a role model and who wants to, you know, help young women rise up with them. Them, and I love that. That's the thing though. Sometimes I would watch episodes and I would save Japoan's too nice. I am not used to seeing executives at that level being that nice of someone that junior also the way in which Jacqueline is intimately involved with Jane's career. What editor in chief at its line by line. The piece from junior junior, junior, junior staffer, are there ever moments or even feedback from folks saying this would not happen? I think that's valid, but I think the show is aspirated little. Okay. Well, I mean, okay. I do not wake up looking how I look on the show. I will say that right now. So, and I don't walk around in amazing, expensive clothes, and I, I don't know many people who do and you know, as soon as they call cut, we're all taking our heels off and putting on crocs like. So I, I don't know, at least to me, there's a level of the show that is aspirational. And I think that having this perfect bosses kind of one of those aspects to me as of you were because I consider myself a fan of the show to love watching what was filmed while I wasn't there. You know, did you Amanda in your twenties? Have a boss at that level. Who was at nice to you? Yeah, I did. Actually, I have. I had a boss. Her name was Maya Thomas, and I turn where I'm Warner audiobooks. Okay. And she just was incredibly kind and mentoring to me and supportive. And I used to write these like ridiculously long memos to her explaining anytime I made mistake and he'd be like, you don't need to do this. You don't need to apologize constantly, and she was fantastic. And then I've had. People who've been absolutely terrible. And you know, I mean that exists as well. They're Jacqueline's out there, but then there are lots of non Jacqueline's I've I've had my Jacqueline. I've had my non Jacqueline's too. I think it's. MandA is actually, I don't. I don't Dane TV as majestic is Jacqueline, but I do. But I do. I am conscious of the fact that that I am a woman in charge and that I am somebody that people look to. And so I think about when I was coming up as a writer that I didn't see a lot of women with families doing, you know, running shows. So I thought here and there. But you know, I make a point to bring my my kids by the office. I have two daughters, Anna, and Tessa, and it's ten and Texas. Six, they'll be very happy that I mentioned them and, and you know, I want PA raiders listens and people coming up to see that like this. You can do this like, you don't have to have this part of your life. Be this secret. Other thing in you can be a show runner, and you can be a leader and you can have a family and, and it's it's messy and it's not always easy, and it's complicated and the that it can be done. And so that's really important for me in thinking about how to foster a strong. Mentoring relationship between an older woman and a younger woman, like what is the one biggest impediment to establishing the kind of relationship the Jack will and has with Jane on the show..

"We traced Christianity Bechtel's African roots, so it's not like we took a white Jesus and painted a black cat. It's really the other way you took a black, Madonna and the blackout in painted that deity white. So we brought it back to the to its roots. I am Velma Maya Thomas and we are at the shrines of the black Madonna culture center and bookstore. In the historic West End of Atlanta. We opened here in nineteen seventy five. We started in Detroit, Michigan. There's a shrine of the black Madonna there, and then some young people came down in opened here. So we have our church an inside the is a chance so portrait of a black, Madonna and child that's from hits the name of the church. We see her as the mother of the community and the church needs to be the mother of the community. So she is in bracing a blackout which the church needs to do so that that portion of it, we also have this portion which is the cultural Seren bookstore. We have a legacy sitter. We have a youth center. We have sort of like a home school center. So we've kind of embraced the black and say, we want to give back to the black community. We want to be a mecca. I wanna be a home. We want to be a place where people can come and say, well, the black people can do. Our theology is one of using the power that God gives us to change our earthly conditions, so we will get involved in education. We will get involved in politics. So the black church has to be what the plagued black churches always been, which has been that center that we own that we can control and that we can put out the message about who we are in what's important to us.
