Mike Gray - Almanac Gardner Host - Headshot
For more than three decades Mike Gray has shared the secrets of master gardeners and horticultural experts. In 1969 Gray became the host/producer of Backyard Gardener, UNC-TV's first-ever gardening program. The name of the show was changed to Almanac Gardener in 1981, but the mission remained the same: answering home gardeners' questions and showing viewers the latest advances in North Carolina home horticulture.
