Looking for Time Well Spent:

RFD-TV Launches “Time Well Spent” As Weekly Series

Premiering on RFD-TV the first week in January, rural Alabama celebrates itself and shows the nation the unique appeal of our great state! A production of Alabama Farmers Cooperative, Time Well Spent is television families can enjoy together, as they see the people, places and events that maintain some of the state’s most time-honored traditions and heritage.

Each 30-minute episode will contain different segments illustrating separate aspects of rural Alabama. Jim Allen will bring to the screen a feature entitled "Rural Alabama… You’ve Got to Love It!" which will focus on special places and events that add a bit of distinctive charm to the landscape of the state.

Grace Smith will host a segment that will take a youthful look at rural Alabama. "Young Folks in Action" will demonstrate how young people are living and learning traditional values as they participate in rural and agricultural activities across the state.

Sidney Phelps of Bonnie Plants will bring out the green thumb in everyone as he delivers the segment "The Gift of Growing Things." A helpful guide for people of all skill levels, this segment will provide the tips and techniques to take gardeners from planting to pruning and harvesting.

"Farming for Wildlife," hosted by BioLogic’s Bobby Cole, is a fun look at improving habitat for wildlife on your property. Each segment will deal with a different topic, from whitetail deer to farm pond management, in an effort to maximize wildlife use and landowner enjoyment.

Special people… Special Events and Activities… A Special Place defined as Rural America… Time Well Spent is a special program, and we believe you will agree it is, well — TIME WELL SPENT each and every week!
