Have you ever seen any Paul's shows "People Places and Plants" on the HGTV network?

What an interesting story he has!

Organic gardener out to change the face of lawn care (http://bangordailynews.com/news/t/lifestyle.aspx?articleid=149461&zoneid=14) - "Iím a lawn-care missionary right now, or an evangelist, or whatever," he said. "My goal is to whip people into a frenzy."

In the preface to his recently published book "The Organic Lawn Care Manual" (Storey, $19.95), Tukey shares the story of his transformation from weed-killing landscaper to organic crusader. The year was 1993, and Tukey was earning a pretty penny as a lawn care professional in the Falmouth area. He also was suffering nosebleeds and shortness of breath.

"My doctor immediately ordered me to cease applications of lawn chemicals," Tukey, who now lives in New Gloucester, writes. "Coincidentally or not, my health problems went away."


Here is his book.
