In the series, “Gardens of the Rich and Famous,” a show on the Digs Channel on Youtube, I’m the garden expert who mentors a couple of homeless actors, Ari and Emma, in gardening!

The show is very tongue-in-cheek, but you learn a valuable gardening lesson in every episode.


In this episode, Ari and Emma find themselves in a garden designed by me (Shirley Bovshow) that is full of edible plants.

About the author  ⁄ Shirley Bovshow

I'm known as "EdenMaker," as well as a "Foodie Gardener" on the web, but you can call me "Shirley" anytime! When I'm not eating or growing my own food, I'm busy designing gardens and producing garden TV shows! When it's time to cook, I ask my family, "What country do you want to visit tonight?" Thank God for WeightWatchers, most of my fruits and veggies are "0-Points." Some of you know what I'm talking about!
