Why did Deb fear the DEA? Listen and find out as we chat with this episode’s guest, Kyle Billman of Goldleaf Hydroponics. When long time hydroponic garden supplier Worm’s Way shut its doors in 2016, employees Kyle and Monica Billman knew there would be a huge resource missing in the growing hydroponic community. So along with one other former employee, they opened Goldleaf Hydroponics to fill the void. By offering both indoor and outdoor growing supplies and equipment, they serve the community (and all of southern Indiana) by offering up everything you need to grow almost anything you desire no matter the weather! Goldleaf is here to help you extend your growing season with on-site demonstrations, knowledgeable staff and free classes. Their passion for sustainability and our local food economy shines through their work with local elementary schools, non-profits like Growing Opportunities, IU, and even the Farmers Market, where they educate and connect with locals about the food they eat and the plants they grow!
In our Facebook Follow segment, follow Growing Opportunities. It’s a unique program started by South Central Community Action Program in partnership with Stonebelt that teaches job skills to folks through the hydroponic cultivation of lettuces and herbs. You’ve probably even eaten something grown by Growing Opportunities without even knowing it! And in our REAL-List segment, we help you understand how to be a home buyer and seller at the same time. If you are thinking of transitioning to a new home, this one is for you.
