Greg Grant to Speak at East Texas Pollinators Program on May 27th

May 16, 2022 - “Houston, we have a pollinator problem.” And since we, as humans, are 100% of the problem and we, as gardeners, are fully complicit; it’s our duty and obligation to do something about it. And when I say “we,” I certainly include “me,” because I’ve done my damaging part, not intentionally, but in ignorant horticultural bliss.

Our gardens, our neighborhoods, our cities, our farms, and our beloved wild Texas has serious issues that need addressing; now, not later. 

Prescribed Burn in Arcadia Planned for Sunday

March 9, 2022 - Greg Grant will be conducting a controlled burn on his 20 acres of longleaf pine in Arcadia on Sunday, March 13. In addition to creating a scenic, open, park-like pine forest and promoting native grasses and wildflowers, regular prescribed fire reduces fuel loads, decreasing the chance of catastrophic fires during the summer; controls underbrush, diseases, and insects; and promotes wildlife habitat for deer, turkey, quail, pollinators, and pine savanna songbirds.
