Jake Gyllenhaal’s Urban Gardening Lesson


 More proof that gardening is now hip, folks!  My favorite part is Jake declaring "Some of my best friends are farmers and it's something that's given my life more meaning than almost anything else that I do [gardening]."  He may actually be one of us. Via Huffington Post.


  1. If I’m not mistaken, Jake’s cohort works with Nancy Goslee Power’s firm. They’re doing some amazing things with school gardens in Southern California. Good for Jake. He and Maggie seem like realgardeners for sure.

  2. Oh, lord. Jake Gyllenhaal turning a compost pile. These are the moments we here at GardenRant live for.

    You know what I would do if I was the editor of a garden magazine? Put a shovel in Jake’s hand and put him on the cover of the next issue. Who’s with me?

  3. WHO is this Jake?
    Not impressed – comments nor for a cover.

    The man SPEAKING (and intelligently) is the HOT ONE!

    “Some of my best friends are ________.”


  4. Hot ? Yes. Do I want him working in my garden ? Yes.

    But somebody should’ve handed him a garden fork ( not a shovel ) to turn that compost, then he would’ve been a tad more believable…
