Cheryl Fox of Summit Land Conservancy, which needs the public's help to save Marchant Meadows, a 160-acre heritage agricultural property in Peoa, Utah, from residential development. “This is a critical time to save these unprotected lands. If we can’t find the matching funds by our October closing date, we’ll see homes in the meadows. We’ll see our water quality damaged, and we’ll lose critical human habitat: green fields, trees, and a flowing stream,” says Fox.

  • The Conservancy has secured a challenge grant of $65,000 from Peoa neighbors, so donations from individuals will be doubled. To learn more about the project and make a contribution, visit

Our tomato pros had so much to say that you'll need to tune in next Friday, Aug. 14, for part 2. And I hear tell that Circus and Al want to do a salsa contest. Who's in?

Fresh, homegrown music from Jacob T. Skeen to close the show. Skeen is one of many local bands and musicians playing KRCL's virtual stage at this weekend's Virtual 12th Annual Craft Lake City DIY Festival Music Showcase.
