Eco-Radio KC

Airs: Tuesday, 12:00 pm

EcoRadio KC is a magazine show, including live segments, prerecorded stories, and interviews. The show is being created by a cooperative team of volunteers made up of local community organizers and activists. We choose a theme for each show which is then produced and hosted by someone from our team. In addition, we draw upon other members of the community as well as area organizations for their knowledge, experience, and ideas.

EcoRadio KC explores our interdependence with the rest of the world, showing the connections between the ways we choose to live and the health of the whole community of life. As a result, we plan to cover a wide range of topics, including local & regenerative agriculture, energy conservation & efficiency, justice, ecovillages, alternative medicine, indigenous peoples, clean energy, local food systems, biofuels, the need for multicultural participation in social change, global warming & climate disruption, extinction, green building and chemistry, and consumerism.

If you have any questions or comments about the show or would like to get involved with the team that produces it, please send an email to EcoRadioKC@gmail.com

Garden Song

by David Mallett

Inch by inch, row by row
Gonna make this garden grow
Gonna mulch it deep and low
Gonna make it fertile ground
Inch by inch, row by row
Please bless these seeds I sow
Please keep them safe below
‘Til the rain comes tumbling down

Pullin’ weeds and pickin’ stones
We are made of dreams and bones
Need a place to call my own
‘Cause the time is close at hand

Grain for grain, sun and rain
Find my way in nature’s chain
Till my body and my brain
Tell the music of the land

Inch by inch, row by row
Gonna make this garden grow
Gonna mulch it deep and low
Gonna make it fertile ground

Plant your rows straight and long
Season with a prayer and song
Mother Earth will make you strong
If you give her loving care

Inch by inch, row by row
Gonna make this garden grow
Gonna mulch it deep and low
Gonna make it fertile ground

Slug by slug, weed by weed
Boy this garden’s got me t’d
All the insects come to feed
On my tomato plants

Sun-burnt face, skinned up knees
The kitchen’s chocked with zucchinis
I’m shopping at the A&P’s
Next time I get the chance

Old crow watching from a tree
He’s got his hungry eye on me
In my garden I’m as free
As that feathered thief up there

Inch by inch, row by row
Gonna make this garden grow
Gonna mulch it deep and low
Gonna make it fertile ground
