Earthgauge Radio September 20, 2012: National Organic Week, Fast for Climate Justice, and the impacts of Ottawa’s summer drought

Lots happening these days on the environmental front in Ottawa and beyond so on Earthgauge Radio this week, I have 3 interviews for you:

First on the show we talk organic food: The last ten years have seen a phenomenal explosion in the organic food movement as it has moved from niche market to main stream. Today, it is the fastest growing segment of the food industry attracting all of the major food corporations. This coming Saturday kicks off Canada’s National Organic Week so we catch up with Stephanie Lane  of Canadian Organic Growers (Ottawa chapter) to talk about National Organic Week and find out why organic food is better for the planet, for farm workers and for you.

Interview with Stephanie Lane:

David Koch also comes into the studio to tell us about how the brutally hot and dry summer drought here in the Ottawa region impacted farmers Ottawa region. Is this a sign of things to come in a changing global climate?

And finally we talk to Lyn Adamson about the Fast and Vigil for Climate Justice  taking place on Parliament Hill from September 21-October 2.
