  Turning Dirt into Food
We get advice from a gardening expert on what a beginner can do to turn dirt, dead grass and leaves, and kitchen scraps into fresh organic produce.
  News of the Week...
We talk about the Millenium Ecological Assessment... 1300 scientists from 95 countries spent four years researching a massive scientific paper that says what most of our listeners already know: that the planet's ability to sustain life in the future cannot be taken for granted, and that a radical change in outlook and attitude is necessary to reverse this course.

Some of today's news came from The Progressive Foundation
