As a lifelong gardener and active person, Madeline de Vries Hooper was surprised when she started to experience aches and pains while gardening. Jeff Hughes, a fitness trainer, was recommended to help. Not only did his training and technique alleviate her aches, but they taught her better gardening habits. Inspired by Jeff’s methods – and her success – the duo
decided to take the show on the road to teach and inspire gardeners and farmers across the U.S. to get GardenFit. I talk to Madeline and Jeff about the gardens they visited and how they are on a mission to help farmers and gardeners alike.
GardenFit premieres March 21, 2022 on American Public Television across the U.S., and will also be streaming on PBS.
