Water Quality in Kansas City on KCUR FM 89.3 - THURSDAY, Jan 14th at 11am

Water Quality in Kansas City
on KCUR FM 89.3

On Thursday January 14 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. KCUR will present a show on Water Quality. Please tune in if you are interested or concerned about the water quality in Kansas City.

Raw sewage often ends up on local streams, rivers and lakes. Kansas City has a combined sewer system that inherently causes raw sewage to occasionally end up in Brush Creek, the Blue River and the Missouri River. Raw sewage poses as a health risk for residents. There have been some recent large spills of raw sewage in the Kansas City area.

Please call into the program in support of Clean Water.

We will:
  • Eat pie and drink coffee.
  • Talk to each other.
We like this event because we have structured conversations, peer to peer, experienced farmer to novice farmer, and community leader to emerging activist. Through our discussions, we learn from each other, we make connections, create partnerships, hatch plots, and brainstorm new and innovative approaches.

So, please bring the issues you'd like to discuss with other farmers/ gardeners/ community members. On the spot, we will organize discussion and learning groups. There are going to be some really smart people in the room (we estimate around 100 or so of them) and you can count on doing some good learning and thinking.

We'll also join together to CREATE A HEALTHY AND GROWING KANSAS CITY (in under three hours J). The local food scene and the urban landscape in Kansas City is changing, we want to spend some time thinking deliberately about how we can take the change process in our own hands and shape it!

PLEASE RSVP so we know we have enough pie and can set up the room properly!
And, let us know if you'll be able to bring pie or any type of food to share with others -

Looking forward to a wonderful morning with you -

Katherine Kelly and the KCCUA staff and board

Funky Friday Farmers Market at BADSEED - A MUST ON FRIDAYS IN THE CROSSROADS

Howdy Folks,

A great big "thanks" to any of you brave souls who risked your lives for local-organic goodness last Friday night despite the nasty weather. Unfortunately, most of our farmers didn’t make it as they were coming from long distances, but believe me….they were there in spirit! Lets hope for a more fruitful market (and a heck of a lot less snow) this Friday from 4-8 PM at the BADSEED.

Weather permitting, we will have the usual array of *Winter Wonders* including:

* Certified Organic Grass-Finished Beef

* 100% Grass Fed Lamb

* Farmstead Sheep’s Milk Cheese

* Free-Range Brown Eggs

* Gourmet Mushrooms in Shitake and Oyster

* Artisan Breads & Baked Goods from local/organic whole wheat flour

* Delicious Jams, Jellies, and various Canned Goods

* Local/Organic Bulk Grains

* Heirloom Pumpkins for pies, soups, and breads

* and last but not least, Organic/Fair-Trade/Micro-roasted Coffee Beans


So come on down and greet your local farmer!! Together we can build community and collective consciousness through the universal pleasure that comes from eating GOOD FOOD!! …..and when I say “good food” I mean food that is grown ethically, with love, and close to home.

Sincerely,

Brooke

-farmer and mistress of the BADSEED
