Talk Radio (regarding Village of Blume an Eco-Sustainable Community)

As the Blume project advances I thought it would be interesting to revisit some older discussions that are very relevant to the Village of Blume.  Blume is an Eco-Sustainable Community that incorporates sustainable design and preservation of Agriculture. Below are two podcasts broadcast live on WFAE's show Charlotte Talks, featuring two of Blume's project team members.

Thursday July 9, 2009 - Aaron Newton discusses the local food movement.

Thursday August 27, 2009 - Michael Hinshaw joins the discussion on Agriburbia.
