Jonette, To us in the Organic community, it does not matter if Howard has a PHD or not. Like Zipper has stated: 'Howard Garrett has devoted his life to educating the public on organic and natural landscaping ...' I don't know where you live, but if in the Metroplex of Dallas and Ft Worth. I strongly suggest that you listen to his programs on WBAP on Saturday mornings, from 11:00 - 12:00 and Sunday mornings from 8:00 - 12:00. If you don't live in the Metroplex you can listen on the internet on WBAP.com. Once you start applying his suggestions and see the difference it makes over the chemicals you will say, to yourself, 'Self, why did I wait so long to be organic? It truely works and it is much much better for you and our precious environment. Also, please look around this great forum and you will read about the many results that different people have seen first hand. Once you learn and see what organics really is about, then you will no longer question why we, and Howard think of him as 'The Dirt Doctor'. To all of us, in the organic community, he is our mentor and the true doctor of the dirt. So please take a look around.
Converting one person at a time to Organics, the only way to go!! [ ME ]
