Morning Edition, Thursday at 8:50am: THE APPALACHIAN SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE PROJECT

ASAP's Farm to School Program is a part of a national program, which began as a way to connect local farmers and local schools by getting students involved in not only learning about where food comes from, but also introducing them to the taste and importance of fresh fruits and vegetables in their diet.

 

Emily Jackson, Executive Director of ASAP's Farm to School Program talks about the program and how to get your school involved.

Morning Edition, Tuesday at 8:50am: THE ANXIOUS GARDNENER'S BOOK OF ANSWERS by Teri Dunn Chace

There are gardeners who instinctively seem to know exactly what each plant needs and their gardens thrive; there are gardeners who dream of having a thriving garden, but just don't seem to be able to get there. Then, there are the anxious gardeners who never know what a plant will do and are constantly watching and worrying.  Gardener and author, Teri Dunn Chace, says she wrote this simple book to answer the most often asked questions about gardening, and the most often made mistakes and how they can be fixed. For anyone who loves to garden, this discussion is fun and informative.
