How can our gardens contribute to saving the planet? One neighborhood at a time! Alissa Hartman and Dreya Mancini offer tutorials on sustainable landscaping, and they talk with the Old Mole's Bill Resnick about their work.
Dr. Rusty Barceló is the Vice President and Vice Provost for Equity and Diversity at the University of Minnesota and a nationally-recognized leader in the field, with more than 30 years of experience in equity and diversity in higher education. She is also a Chicana with deep roots in the Mexican-American community, and a singer-songwriter. Luz María Gordillo talks with her about her life, her community, her music, and her educational philosopy, and we hear several of her songs.
Community Organizing is going on around immigration issues in the Willamette Valley; two such activists are Amelia Cates and Amy Dudley. They talk with Old Mole Denise Morris about their work with PCASC (Portland Central American Steering Committee), PACT (Portland Allies Coming Together), and the Rural Organizing Project. Of immediate concern are two Sizemore ballot measures aimed against immigrants.
Hosted by Luz María Gordillo, this show deals with issues affecting Mexican-Americans as well as immigration. We also learn about saving the planet, our city, and our neighborhoods by changing the way we landscape and garden in our yards.
