To start the program off, I will play the second half of an interview that was aired a couple of weeks ago of Cliff Oakley who was talking about growing up on a farm in Grand Gorge. The part we will hear is largely about Cliff Oakley’s time as the Milk INspector for Prospect dairy. Live in the studio with me is Bovina Town historian Ray Lafever and Evelyn Stewart President of Farming Bovina, a not for profit agriculture organization in Bovina with a goal to aid farmers in achieving sustainability and economic stability.
We will also hear a clip from Farm Radio International about an extension worker who helps villagers to reclaim the health and agricultural benefits of indigenous green leafy vegetables, commonly stigmatized as “poor people’s food.” This piece recorded in Ghana is called “A community fights malnutrition with local leafy vegetables”
