No Farms No Food Rally & Lobby Day 3/30/11
This week on Watershed Wednesday, two guests join me to fill the hour. At 1 pm, New York State Director David Haight at American Farmland Trust will call in with details on the upcoming No Farms, No Food Rally in Albany next Wednesday, March 30. Why are farmers, food advocates, local officials, environmentalists and other New Yorkers descending up the State Capitol to meet with legislators about the critical importance of farms and food to New York?
At 1:15 p, Caroline Foote of Maple Hill Farms of Cobleskill will call in to talk about Maple tree-sweet and the NYS Maple weekend underway. Caroline blogs, makes syrup with co-owner Victor Putnam, and has a whole lot of fun working with Mother Nature's chemistry to produce maple products. New York ranks second in the nation for maple syrup production behind Vermont. Find out more about the process, the product and life on Maple Hill Farms by tuning in to Watershed Wednesday, 1pm on WIOX Community Radio 91.3FM.
