Local Dirt aims to inform, educate, and inspire its listeners about what's "growing on" in our agricultural communities. Each show features music to hoe by and a creative blend of guest interviews, poetry readings, call-in questions, and updates on local food and agriculture events.
Shows were hosted by Temra Costa, Navina Khanna, Dori Stone, Luis Sierra, or Rodney and Sandy Weaver. Now, hosts include Natalie Yahr and Danielle Lee.
