It’s fall: for some it’s school time for others it harvest season. Perhaps you’re not a farmer, well then it’s time for apple picking or attending local fairs.

Join hosts Sierra Stalker and Iris SanGiovanni as they discuss agriculture, with a bountiful  crop of topics to discuss from the appeal of Supreme Court case against Monsanto Agriculture Corporation with owner of local Wood Prairie farm and President of the Organic Seed and Growers Association Jim Gerritsen; to youth gardening with Laura Mailander, a garden educator at Portland elementary schools and Cultivating Community; and later in the show we’ll be discussing the Common Ground fair with Jim Ahearne, Director of the Common Ground Fair produced by the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA).
