Program Title: From the Wildfire into the Soup Pot
Description: A study published in Earth’s Future last year is clear: the fires that ravaged B.C. in 2017 were made terrifyingly worse by human-induced climate change. We made weather worse, whipping up winds, calling down lighting and causing the fires to burn up to 11 times more land than normal. And, things might get worse still. To understand what’s at stake, and what we can do Wayne MacPhail spoke with a western voice of reason, and a Harrowsmith magazine contributor Vanessa Farnsworth. Things get dark, but we offer hope. Hang in there.

On a lighter note ...

How do you make soup from compost and a stone? Well, you don’t, really, but the Compost Council of Canada was inspired by the fable of stone soup to fund their Plant, Grow, Share-a-Row program by hosting Soupalicious, a celebration of the earth’s bound and humans desire to share. Wayne spoke with Susan Antler of the Compost Council about the origins and intents of the delicious event.
