TORONTO, March 1, 2018 /CNW/ - Celebrate the first day of spring with a new 10-part documentary series focused on cultivating meaningful connections with nature and the community through accessible gardening. A series by Tell Tale Productions, Growing Sense premieres on AMI-tv Tuesday, March 20 at 8:30 p.m. ET and PT.
Novice gardener Milena Khazanavicius once worked as a floral designer with dreams of opening her own shop before losing her sight at the age of 22. Rosmarie Lohnes is a veteran ecological landscaper with a passion for restoring sustainable ecosystems that connect people with nature. Together, they'll build and tend to an accessible garden plot at Common Roots Urban Farm in Halifax, Nova Scotia, growing a variety of foods, tackling tough landscaping projects and fostering a lasting friendship.
"Growing Sense really highlights the importance of following your passion and stepping outside of your comfort zone," says John Melville, Vice President of Programming and Production for AMI-tv. "The show provides some interesting how-to content with an array of helpful tips for gardening enthusiasts of all abilities, including individuals living with sight loss."
Growing Sense features Integrated Described Video and is accessible to audience members who are blind or partially sighted. Starting March 20, the series airs Tuesdays at 8:30 p.m. ET and PT, and will be available online at AMI.ca and on the AMI app for iPhone and Apple TV after the initial broadcast.
