Greenfingered Growths with Murdoch Brimley

This alien invasion / gardening column can be found in the (web) pages of Bear Creek Gazette – a fictional paper for a very strange town. James was lucky enough to have a piece chosen for issue two and even luckier to be allowed to develop it into a series for subsequent issues. March 2021 – Ongoing.

Parts one and two are here: https://www.welcometobearcreek.com/greenfingered-growths
