You’re Invited to Sponsor GGVideos

Where is the public going for how-to instruction these days? Videos on YouTube! Sadly, people seeking good gardening information are finding a lot of videos that

  • Contain misinformation that can cause gardeners to fail
  • Are sales pitches in disguise
  • Are clickbait for content mills
  • Don’t identify the speaker’s location, or even their name
  • Are by experts from other continents
  • Recommend harmful products or “remedies”
  • Are marred by shaky cameras or traffic noise

So garden writers and horticulturists created this award-winning, nonprofit campaign to curate gardening video for accuracy and watchability. It’s a one-stop shop for quality gardening instruction especially for North Americans.

So far, GGVideos has found more than 600 good videos that

  • Teach beginners and others to succeed as gardeners, with reliable how-to information
  • Are made by Extension scientists and other trusted experts
  • Clearly identify the expert and the location
  • Are well made – no traffic noise or shaky camera

GGVideos promotes the selected videos via this website, YouTube, Pinterest, e-newsletters, its Facebook page, and by sharing to key gardening groups on Facebook and Yahoo.
