Our region has agricultural roots that go deep...and we feed off of them as we celebrate those today who care so much for us to get the best off the trees...out of the ground...and onto our plates!

From farmer's markets to farm to table events to farm fresh recipes and menu items...there are so many ways to enjoy the great things area farmers do.  Their work is so hard...their passion is so deep...and their knowledge and commitment just amazing.  

We get insights into all of that in a series of programs and features and event promotions...so stay tuned to iCRV Radio and truly support these great members of our community...you can always get straight answers on how crops were cultivated or cattle raised...you understand the importance of certain processes...and we think you might feel the reason...for why you should Live Local...and Shop Local...especially when it comes to fruits, veggies, and meats and eggs!!!

As we say...listen in and enjoy our programs..and if you get a chance...Hug a Farmer!

On our show this month.....Pollinator Pathways are coming to your town!

We'll be talking to Mary Ellen Lemay, one of the originators of the Pollinator Pathway concept, which is a pesticide-free corridor of public and private properties that provide native plant habitat and nutrition for pollinators – bees, butterflies, and so much more.  The idea has spread from Fairfield County throughout towns in Connecticut, and builds on the work of entomologist and icon, Doug Tallamy's Bringing Nature Home book that underscores the importance of insects to fuel many food webs. Join us for this look into the history, mechanics and opportunities of connecting pathways for pollinators – and how you can join the effort! And take a look at their terrific website: https://www.pollinator-pathway.org/
