For Beyond 50's "Gardening" talks, watch a video interview with Roland Evans of Bountea. He is part of a long line of family gardeners from Ireland, going back to the 1890s. His brother John is famous for earning 9 Guinness Book of World Records for growing the largest vegetables. According to Roland, the secret is in the soil. He will talk about how to prepare your plantings from seeds for growing them organic and very big through revitalizing the soil using a compost tea of lots of micro-organisms.
Finding Family is the true story of the first adoptee to find his birth family through the home DNA tests that are now so common.

Midwest Book Review describes it as "impressively informative, exceptionally well written, an inherently fascinating and compelling read from beginning to end." Finding Family is available in print, Kindle and audiobook formats at Amazon and elsewhere.
