Skip Bedell, Co-Host of Spike TV's "Catch A Contractor"

Skip Bedell is a licensed Home Improvement Contractor and television personality. His love for building began at a very early age as he learned carpentry skills from his grandfather and father, both master craftsman who had built some of Long Island’s earliest homes. In addition, the family lived on a marina they owned, Bedell’s Boat Yard, and Skip grew up watching his grandfather build everything from boats to furniture in the wood shop, and thus began his affinity for hand tools and the smell of fresh saw dust. Skip soon learned to build as a teenage apprentice and began working on hundreds of homes. It was these earliest jobs where he acquired his vast knowledge of the trades, working under master carpenters, licensed electricians, plumbers and masons.

Skip’s knowledgeable and friendly persona landed him roles in local television commercials for building products, e-learning modules, and a Home Depot holiday gift segment on NBC’s Today Show.  Most recently, he is the co-host of Catch A Contractor, which recently completed it’s 3rd season on Spike, along with his wife Alison and Adam Carolla.  You can also find him regularly giving DIY tips and product advice on the FOX News Network’s morning show, FOX & Friends.

NATURE’S FINEST MARKETPLACE…

The 15th annual Gardenfest! was held in Riverside Park, Vero Beach with 90 vendors, 8 non-profit organizations and 8 Blue Ribbon sponsors greeting over 20,000 visitors. Saturday, February 6 was a beautiful day with large crowds causing traffic to back-up the Barber Bridge and in the large grass parking lots. Rains returned Saturday night after saturating the area about 1 ½ weeks ago so, for the first time in 15 years, there was standing water in the park on Sunday, February 7. Vendors were moved, walkways covered, mulch spread but the show went on. People cheered late morning when the sun came out and crowds appeared on this sunny, cold day. 

It was a beautiful shopping event with plants, planters, pottery, fountains, furniture, patio designs, lighting, statuary and other garden accessories. Plants for sale included palms, ferns, orchids, bromeliads, Florida natives, herbs, succulents, bamboo and roses. Gardenfest! continues as the horticulturist's weekend resource and garden shopper's Mecca.

Fans of the horticulture arena visited Gardenfest! for the interesting "Ask The Expert" question and answer sessions each day facilitated by top-notch authorities in their fields. Our experts for 2016 were:

• "Caring for Your Orchids" with John Odom of Odom's Orchids, Inc.
• "Herbs, Garden To Table" with Dennis Gretton of D&D Growers
• "Garden Pollinators" with Shari Blisset-Clark of the Florida Bat Conservancy/Bat Belfrys
