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!


Gardening for Good July 2021

Our guest on Gardening for Good this week is Laurie Silvia, who has demonstrated that you don’t have to be a specialist (or a millionaire) to convert your lawn into a more environmentally friendly landscape. Over time, and with curiosity and commitment, Laurie has converted her lawn into meadow and wildlife habitat.  She estimates that she has about 80 percent less lawn than before she started, and now there are birds and foxes and bunnies to see and enjoy.

 

Join us for a conversation about how you, too, can take steps to rethink your lawn – into a diverse, lively and environmentally sound alternative landscape.
