Our special guest today on the Sustainable Living program was Tampa’s premier vegetable farmer, Rick Martinez, founder of Sweetwater Organic Farm in West Tampa.

Sweetwater is a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farm where you can buy food shares from the farm, and volunteer to help grow the vegetables through-out the season. Rick answered a variety of questions from listeners.

Sweetwater is holding an Earth Day event at the farm on Saturday, April 17th, with a lot of farm related workshops, vendors and more.

We also had a promoter of the Tampa Lowry Park Earth Day Event which takes place on Sunday, April 18, talk about this great event organized by the Sierra Club.

On Sustainable Living last week I heard about a type of grass that is easy to grow. I thought is was called popcorn grass. I'd like to check into getting some, but don't know the best place to look.
