Program Showcase

In this age of Big Ag and Wall Street financing of our food supply, is it still possible to start an independent small farm? Is it even worth trying?

Mendocino County is a hotbed of locavore farming, where difficult challenges are generating ingenious new business strategies.

On Mendocino Works, our new KZYX program about the nurture of sustainable startups, we heard Ellen Buechner tell how her family raised the capital to launch Fortunate Farm in Caspar, and she shared the innovations that keep them rewriting their business plan.

 Sunday's show was hosted by Laytonville High School students. The topic was "Reactions to Drug Education." The hosts were various students who had listened to Ralph Cantor on cannabis/alcohol and the developing brain. What did they learn? Is it important? What do they now know that their parents do not know? Do they consider marijuana use in high school a problem? I found they had interesting insights into drugs in the schools and drug education.    Really worth hearing, and thinking about how important honest drug education in the schools is.
