Raspberries, melons, asparagus... those are just a few things we grow organic here in Nevada. Surprised? Local farmers join us to talk about why they're going organic up North and why it's not taking off in Southern Nevada. Also, we find out what happened when the organics department nearly hit the chopping block earlier this year... and how a group of angry farmers saved it.

Guests:
Steve Marty, Agriculturist IV, NV Dept of Agriculture
Rick Lattin, organic farmer, Lattin Farms; Pres, Nevada Grown Farmers Assoc
Marcia Litsinger, organic farmer, Churchill Butte Organics; Vice-Chair, Nevada Organic Advisory Council

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
