TV Show – “This Blooming City”


Watch our weekly TV show “This Blooming City” here hosted by former WPBF Co-President Marie Silverman Marich and produced by White Plains Community Media. The show airs at 6:30pm on Saturdays and 10:30am on Sundays on community access channels, Verizon 45 and Cablevision/Optimum 76. Shows highlight WPBF’s activities, tell a little about our illustrious history and include interviews with  guests who help make our work happen – local businesses, city officials and others.

In a recent show, “Nancy, Nancy, How Does Your Garden Grow,” Marie (standing in photo below) asks WPBF Director and Master Gardener Nancy Giges for some tips about what to do in the garden in the spring.
