When Chip and Joanna Gaines announced their Magnolia Network for DIY-focused content, most people thought they meant fixing up houses or long-term knitting projects. DIY applies to farming too, and the new show Homegrown is teaching audiences the best practices for urban farming taught by professional urban gardener Jamila Norman.
