America in Bloom (AIB) judges will be scouting for potential filming locations for the 2012 season of the award-winning TV show, “Growing a Greener World,” while visiting American cities from coast to coast this summer.
“Our judging team is the best ever and they’re looking forward to sharing this exciting opportunity with our participating towns and cities,” says Jack Clasen, AIB board member and judging chair.
The show was founded by executive producer and host Joe Lamp’l, otherwise known as Joe Gardner. Lamp’l has hosted “Fresh from the Garden” on DIY Network and Garden Smart on Public Television. He is also a popular author on the speaking circuit, engaging in the public in person and online through his social media platforms.
“I am very excited to have AIB’s keen sense of discernment as they travel the country seeking the best of what America has to offer,” Lamp’l says. “They already understand that great gardens can build a rich community.”
Lamp’l has become a big supporter of America in Bloom and its efforts to revitalize communities and make them more livable and sustainable. AIB looks forward to contributing to Growing a Greener World’s high quality programming and shining a spotlight on vibrant community programs. Growing a Greener World is nationally distributed through American Public Television and presented by UNC-TV.
