Martha Stewart Living Radio: The Radio Blog

Broadcasting from the Gardens

Posted by

The New York Botanical Gardens is a phenomenon -- there are acres and acres of greenery! Just like people can't believe that Central Park exists smack in the middle of NYC, it's pretty amazing that the NYBG is located in the Bronx.

Tomorrow from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm EST, Martha Stewart Living Radio will be broadcasting live from NYBG! We'll have cool guests on air from Food Network chefs to herbal tea connoisseurs. If you live in the NYC area and want tixs to the event email If you can't attend the event, make sure to tune in (Sirius 112 or XM 157) or view online Martha's Herb Garden (it's located at the NYGB).
