Reskilling Festival, Apples, Apples, Apples, and more!
Join DJ Local, Jeff the Rooster, and The Farmer's Marketer for a fall harvest show.
We first preview the Ann Arbor Reskilling Festival being held this Saturday, October 24th, 10am-4pm, at the Rudolf Steiner High School. The event is sponsored by the school and Transition Ann Arbor who were interviewed previously on this show. This event is part of 350.org international day of climate action.
Second, we talk at length with farmer and sustainable ag visionary Jim Koan of Almar Orchards in Flushing, Michigan.
Third, we have a brief chat with Silvio or Silvio's Organic Pizza, who celebrate their 4th ann-arbor-versary this Sunday at the restaurant. Lastly, we talk with Tom Milano who began fasting this morning at the Innate Healing Arts Center in Detroit in an attempt to raise awareness and funds for farmland.
