Mike's show was broadcast live from Kolatek's Bakery and Deli in Chicago on March 2. During this segment, he talks to Jill Niewoehner of Mama Grows about how to inoculate logs and produce mushrooms, specifically Shiitakes, in your own backyard. Jeanne Nolan of The Organic Gardener, Ltd., and author ofFrom the Ground Up, offers advice to anybody who wants to grow produce organically. They will both be presenting workshops at the Good Food Festival in Chicago, which runs from March 13 to 15.
Michelle Parker, Vice President of Great Lakes and Sustainability at the Shedd Aquarium, and Josh Mogerman from the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), explain why the introduction of invasive species like Asian carp can be potentially catastrophic to the Great Lakes. They also discuss the recent study by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers about how to keep the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River watersheds apart.
