Architecture and its role in our lives is Danny’s message, today. Our discussion ranges from knowing the fabric of our city to respect and restoration to the current Rice Building Workshop project about affordable housing, a 300 square foot living space ancillary to a main home.

Farm Dirt is a story about a small business in Houston’s 5th Ward. It’s a story about making your carbon footprint very small. Farm Dirt takes local food “waste”, local tree trimmings and makes local compost–and brings it back to you at local garden stores and farmers’ markets. Danny tells how he got started, how they do it (and you can do it, too) and how you end up with soil the better for it.
