Aldine, KRCL's Punk Rock Farmer, talks with the folks behind Foodscaping Utah, a volunteer group that helps people in Ogden transform their front yards into edible landscapes. Plus, a Moveable Feast of the 5 Senses with Slow Food Utah, SLC Air Protectors' Medicine Prayer Run, a Joe Hill Labor Day, and homegrown music from Kate MacLeod and The Boys Ranch.

Tonight's lineup:

Gwen Crist of Slow Food Utah, which celebrates a Moveable Feast of 5 Senses later this month. It's the primary fundraiser for SFU's microgrant program, which funds projects for small farms, food producers and nonprofit organizations. The COVID pivot for the annual feast is presented by Harmons Grocer, which has a challenge grant to match donations to Slow Food Utah up to $5,000. Click here to help them out.

  • Sept. 26: Moveable Feast of 5 Senses, 7:00 p.m. online. Nine local restaurants have paired with nine local farms to create four-course meals packaged to take home for Your Personal Feast. Vegetarian and vegan options available. Click here to sign up and select the desired restaurant and purchase meals. 

Jacob Crane of SLC Air Protectors called in from the road to share progress on the Running As Medicine Prayer Run, which started at Bears Ears National Monument earlier this week. The 352-mile run to bring prayers and healing to our communities ends at approximately 2:50 p.m. Saturday, September 5, 2020, at Warm Springs Park, 840 N. 300 W., SLC. 

As we head into Labor Day weekend, RadioACTive shared a conversation with Jeremy Harmon.
