Sunflower with BeeTaggert Siegel



We have an amazing show lined up for you this week.  Our first guest Taggart Siegel is the director of Queen of the Sun:  What Are the Bees Telling Us?  Taggart was the acclaimed director behind the recent documentary The Real Dirt on Farmer John which told the true story of John Peterson, a farmer near Chicago who through a series of misfortunes ended up developing a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) that serves 1200 families.  

The award-winning Queen of the Sun will be shown in Fairfield this week on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Arts and Convention Center.  It opened to critical acclaim two weeks ago in New York and had its Los Angeles premier last week.

Want to improve your locavore score?  Listen to Cook for Good's Linda Watson as she explains how easy and inexpensive it is to cook from scratch at home if you have a PLAN.  She's on a mission to make certain home cooks have all the information they need to eat healthy, local and green while making efficient use of their time and money.  Linda says it's possible to cook "green" at home for less than the food stamp allowance/meal in North Carolina where she lives (based on a family of four).  That information should prove to be an eye-opener.  Practical tips, some recipes, and an intro to organizing your kitchen life, all that in the first part of our show.
