Upcoming program highlights

Monday, November 24

10:00 AM - Turning Pages at Nature's Pace

We read from Apples of Uncommon Character by James Beard Award-winning author Rowan Jacobsen. It is 123 Heirlooms, Modern Classics and Little-Known Wonders, Plus 20 Sweet and Savory Recipes.

"A true delight... The descriptions are almost lyrical and a pleasure to read. Each apple comes with its own full-page photo, beautifully shot in natural light...I love the surprising readability of this book. It should be tucked into the backpacks of all apple festival-goers. I really can't recommend this book enough." -

12:00 PM - The Farm and Foodshed Report

The guest this week is environmental lawyer-turned-rancher Nicolette Hahn Niman whose new book Defending Beef is shaking things up as she dispels the nearly universal dogma among environmentalists and health advocates that cattle and beef are public enemy number one. In Defending Beef, she argues that cattle are not inherently bad for either the Earth or our own nutritional health. Deep research, critical thinking and solid data are the foundations of the brilliantly constructed case she makes for sustainable meat production. Listen in to host Robin Carpenter and guest Nicolette Hahn Niman as they discuss the implications of her research and the reception of her book.

1:00 PM - Post-Carbon Radio

"Women Organizing for a Better Future for Humanity." Co-hosts Karen Nyhus and Bing Gong interview Robin Milam on the second Women's Congress for Rights of Future Generations, held in Minneapolis; and Pennie Opal Plant, from Idle No More Bay Area about her trip to New York on the Climate Train, reasons to be optimistic, strong moving forward together, and upcoming opportunities to plug in.
