'In the Garden' wins regional EMMY®

The N.C. State University-produced show In the Garden with Bryce Lane has won a regional EMMY® Award. The production team received the award in Nashville, Tenn., over the weekend at the 25th Annual Midsouth Regional Emmy® Awards.

The EMMY® Award was presented by Nashville/Midsouth Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) during a live telecast from the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. There were nearly 700 entries that resulted in nominations for 70 companies in 72 categories. A complete list of nominees is online.

In the Garden is produced by Communication Services at North Carolina State University. Bryce Lane, host and instructor in N.C. State’s Horticultural Science Department, brings more than 28 years of teaching experience to television. The production team includes videographer/editor Simone Keith, producer Sonya Williams Harris and graphic artist John Vanaman. The show airs Saturdays at noon on UNC-TV.

Williams Harris said In the Garden won the award for a show about gardening with children. The episode, from the show’s seventh season, features Lane’s grandchildren working in his home garden, as well as students from Raleigh’s Ravenscroft School and 4-H horticulture specialist Liz Driscoll demonstrating fun gardening activities for children.

In the Garden, beginning its ninth season this year, is the only show of its kind offered in North Carolina. The show is both an entertaining television series and a horticulture distance education course. Viewers can register for the course to earn college credit.

NATAS is a non-profit, professional organization dedicated to fostering excellence in television. The academy has 19 chapters with 15,000 members nationwide. The Nashville/Midsouth Region includes portions of North Carolina, Tennessee and Alabama.
