“Prairie Yard and Garden” (PY&G), on Pioneer Public Television, will travel to Buffalo, Minnesota, on Thursday, February 24, 2011, to see the backyard of Bob and Thea Adams. Host Larry Zilliox will tour their backyard, a truly unique space that features two hobbies: medium-scale railroading and gardening.
Created and produced at the University of Minnesota, Morris, PY&G is in its 24th year of traveling the state tapping researchers, gardening and nursery professionals, educators, and ordinary backyard gardeners for their expertise in horticulture, landscaping, and a variety of gardening topics in a sometimes difficult and frustrating growing region. PY&G has been one of the number one rated programs of national or local origination on Pioneer for the last few years. The program airs Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m. January through April, with rebroadcasts Mondays at 1 p.m. and Saturdays at 4:30 p.m.
Pioneer Public Television, a Public Broadcasting System (PBS) affiliate, serves more than 375,000 households across Minnesota, South Dakota, and Iowa.
