"Every child should have mud pies, grasshoppers, waterbugs, tadpoles, frogs & turtles, elderberries, wild strawberries, acorns, hickory nuts, trees to climb, animals to pet, hayfields, pine cones, rocks to roll, sand, snakes, huckleberries and hornets – and any child who has been deprived of these has been deprived of the best part of his education." -Luther Burbank 1849 - 1926

"Living with Ed" - NEW! Green humor with Ed Begley Jr. and Rachelle Carson

Watch "Living with Ed" Sundays 10pm e/p. Catch a sneak peek, Monday, Jan. 1, right after the Rose Parade!

TV and movie actor Ed Begley is perhaps the greenest man in Tinsel Town. He rides his electric car around town, and even to the Academy Awards. He and his wife power their home with solar panels and his stationary bike. But living with Ed and his green passion isn't always easy for wife, Rachelle. HGTV brings you this first-of-its-kind reality green show that chronicles life with an earth-friendly, aficionado with humor and heart.

Meet the Begleys

Ed Begley, green living

From his electric car to his white picket fence made out of recycled milk jugs to his outdoor oven powered by the sun, Ed Begley, Jr., isn't just an actor — he might also be the greenest man in Hollywood. Green living is easy for Begley, but for his wife Rachelle Carson, it's another story. According to HGTV, she cares about the environment, but if she wants a long, hot shower, Ed times her and what seems like a normal task is anything but in this household.

Want toast? Ed's stationary bike is connected to his solar-power supply, so each morning he rides to make more electricity. Meet the Begleys and laugh out loud as you peek inside living With Ed.
