Cat French and Sherry Eichberger

December 16, 2012

Cat French of Exodus Cry Houston takes us on a tour of Houston’s sex trafficking, its source of perpetually indentured women and how things got to be this way.  It’s a troubling subject, but she does and excellent job and the conversation is well worth listening to.  Sherry returns, One Green Street has re-located to the Heights; and, in addition to being a part the discussion with Cat, she tells of green interest alive and well in Houston and how a small business thrives.

Kirk Farris and Ray Sher; Buffalo Bayou and Plant It Forward

December 12, 2012

Kirk Farris, an iconoclast, talks of the Bayou from a different perspective–its history, buildings, structures and the things that can be seen today.  He is working on the Frost townsite and the preservation of the McKee Street Bridge, but his thoughts all along the bayou deserve a listen.

Ray Sher is always a welcome guest, and today he talks of his new project with refugee farmers.  The first group is from the Congo, and they are well into their first season of growing and selling; planting it forward with 38 raised beds and already doubling their offerings at the Saturday farmers market.

Jim Blackburn and the Texas Coast

December 5, 2012

Jim is here to talk about the Texas Coast, shores, storms, marshes and bays– and new ways to think about adding value as a means to rebuild and preserve things we hold dear.  Poetry and laughter punctuate the show as we near the end of a good year. If you would like an e-copy of Blackburn’s soon to be finished Coastal Update, send an email to dalecordray@blackburncarter.com and she will add you to the list.
