Sustainable Living and Alternative Health | Listen to this entire show:
Our guests on todayâ€™s program were local urban farmers Casey Frosch, the new farm manager for Sweetwater Organic Farm located in western Hillsborough County, and returning to the show, James Kovaleski, a permaculture-rooted urban farmer in New Port Richey. Sweetwater has ongoing workshops at their farm and this Sunday, December 16, Jim will be doing the workshop on a different approach to growing vegetables: "Free Range Worms and Grass-fed Vegetables is the title of his workshop based on permaculture and some of Joel Salatinâ€™s ideas on pasture-based farming (Polyface Farms). We had a lot of fun with this but also talked a lot about the organic conventional way of growing vegetables. Caseyâ€™s doing a great job at Sweetwater, just visit the farmâ€™s market any Sunday Noon-4PM during their season and see the beautiful veggies. Jim also offers tours at his urban farm in Newport Richey. Jim has a Facebook page.
