As federal lawmakers advance legislation that would increase timber harvests across the nation, including in Oregon, the environmentalist group Cascadia Forest Defenders continues a tree-sit and blockade on proposed timber sale land in southern Oregon.
Occupiers with the White Castle Tree-Sit, located near Myrtle Creek, Oregon, aim to block the proposed one-hundred-ninety acre White Castle Variable Retention Harvest, which they call a thinly veiled clearcut targeting dwindling old-growth forests.
KBOO's Jenn Chavez spoke with Mary Grace with the Cascadia Forest Defenders for an update on the tree-sit, which began in early June and is now nearing its third month.
Just in time for it's August peak, host Glen Andresen and guest Jim Gilbert tackle the topic of harvesting--the when and how of picking fruit and vegetables at just the right time in just the right manner.
As always, a new Plant of the Month (pears); a new Garden Stumper quiz (with actual prizes again this month--tickets to the September 12 showing of "Cafeteria Man" at the Hollywood Theatre's 1st Annual Portland EcoFilm Festival); what's going on in the honey bee hive this month; and answers to your gardening questions.
