In this information packed episode, the second at our new Thursday time, Angela hits all the things that will get you started on your Houston fruit growing journey. Urban Harvest has the answers to everything about gardening, and the annual sale (Feb. 9, 2019) has been a part of those answers for almost 20 years. Whether a container on your porch or a Meyer Lemon as your sunny yard mainstay, fruit trees are another reason to love our Houston town.

First show at our new Thursday time, and David gets us off to a good start with a wide ranging discussion about climate change and what we, as individuals, can do about it. If you want to join in, he’s always at facebook and Houston Tomorrow (and don’t forget their monthly brown bag lunch sessions at HGAC).

Billy begins the show with his family’s story, the night of the flood. Family members died trying to evacuate, helicopters could not lower their baskets because of power lines, then the Cajun Navy arrived. This is the introduction to a discussion about survival, recovery and planning for the future–including the next flood. Billy’s home is one of many that West Street Recovery‘s group of groups is working to rebuild–but there’s so much more, all the way to the legislature and input to federal response to crises like these.

Jay joins us on New Year’s Day to talk about Houston’s homeless from a different perspective–Jay and friends cook vegetable meals and give them to homeless individuals. He has the insights that academics and bureaucracies do not and can not have. He talks about homeless stories, how Houston works with the phenomenon better than most, but still could do things better. We’ll have Jay back to talk about this again, so this is the first in a series.

We are grateful for many things around Christmas time, and Lawrence coming on the show, complete with Santa hat and guitar–certainly tops the list. We talk about liberalizing the science curriculum at Westside with art and music–kind of fitting things into the whole. Topping it all this fall was 600+ set of student kayak adventures with Galveston’s Artist Boat. We look forward to more in the near future.
