Independent Media Must Stay Strong!


Local public stations like KZYX are unique because our daily programming is tailored to the communities we serve. We have the means to build bridges between those communities no matter how far apart they may be.

                  KZYX exists because of you. In these uncertain times, our mission to keep our listeners informed, entertained, and connected is more critical than ever. As the year draws to a close, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to the station you rely on for updates of all kinds – local, regional, national, and international.

                  This December, we’re trying something new to complement our traditional year-end outreach. KZYX is taking part in a nationwide fundraising effort, sponsored by the National Federation of Community Broadcasters, a network of small stations like ours, dedicated to supporting each other’s efforts to keep independent media strong. Called “GiveBig to MyStation”, the campaign is a 48-hour event for local public stations across the nation on December 29th and 30th. Your donation comes directly to KZYX, but by adding your voice to this effort, you are encouraging the work of community stations like ours all over the country. You can learn more about it by visiting the GiveBig to MyStation website.

                  Whether you send in your donation today, in the enclosed envelope, or or donate through the GiveBig to MyStation campaign, your contribution is critical to the survival of a rare and precious resource - independent media - right here in Mendocino County. Thanks for doing what you can!

Here is the archive of this show:

Robert Kourik is edible landscaper and author of books on Drip Irrigation, Roots Demystified, and Designing and Maintaining Your Edible Landscape Naturally. 

John Kempf is founder and CEO of Advancing Eco Agriculture which provides education on what makes plants reach their full potential, and provides plant nutrients.

The show turned out less a debate and more an in-depth discussion of making soil that supports plant immunity from pests and disease, for which water is a key essential element.  It was agreed that fairly frequent (daily) irrigation makes sense, though for trees John Kempf thought less often made sense.  I would say consider frequent watering when the tree is growing feeder roots: the several weeks after petal fall and again after buds are set for next year (in CA, late April-Late May and August) and less often in other times.  One of the more novel (to the hosts) ideas was that of the 4-level plant health pyramid

of plant health and where various diseases and insect pests cannot get beyond.  The first level, complex carbohydrates, will resist soil-borne pathogens like verticillium wilt, phytopthera to some extent.  Aphid and whitefly and a number of soft-bodied pests (at the infestation level) indicate lack of proteins (second level not reached) that can be corrected with things like soft rock phosphate, oystershell lime, gypsum; and for trace minerals, Azomite, kelp meal, or greensand (or in some cases specific trace minerals if indicated by a soil test).  Beetles are harder to repel and require not just lipids (level 3) where air-borne pathogens are stopped (mildews) but also Plant Secondary Metabolites (like essential oils).  To acheive level 3 and level 4, the soil biology is key.

Community Advisory Board to Meet in Ukiah

Meetings of the Community Advisory Board are open to the public, and time is allotted for public comment.
