  • March 15, 2023: Cultivating home and community food gardens in Washtenaw County 

    Food prices are kicking a lot of people right where it hurts…the wallet. Supply issues during the pandemic and inflation are sending prices soaring. As a result, more people are beginning or returning to, home gardens. Stacy Mates is the seed company manager for the Green Things Farm Collective in Ann Arbor. She shares her expertise in a conversation with WEMU's David Fair.  Tune in to 89.1FM WEMU to hear the shows on the air, or listen to archived shows on our Issues of the Environment page.  For questions or ideas for future show topics, please contact Mary Mathias Lapp.
