Talk Back Florida: Talking Gardening and more

Missed part of the show? Heres a rewind of the program on April 5, 2014.

Talk Back Florida was filled with great guests and information starting with the latest stats on women in business according to a study by American Express: 8.6 million women owned businesses are in the U.S. generating 1.3 trillion in revenue and employing 7.8 million people. The Tampa Bay Business Journal is hosting Mentoring Monday for women in business and TBBJ President and Publisher Bridgette Bellow and Dir of New Operations, Pam Huff talked about the new mentoring program and the Women in Business edition of the biz journal.


Perfect weather means spending time outside so we talked about lots of different ways to be healthy, eat healthy and garden! From container gardening, community gardening and organic gardening to the impact gardening can have on your psyche, as well as your nutritional and economic well being. We covered the gardening gambit.
