Elizabeth Sparks from the Tucson Village Farm (TVF) joins the Brothers Ronstadt this week. TVF is a working urban farm built by and for the youth of our community. A program of the Pima County Cooperative Extension and the University of Arizona, TVF is a seed-to-table program designed to reconnect young people to a healthy food system, teach them how to grow and prepare fresh food, and empower them to make healthy life choices.
Fred and Jeff spend the hour with Miles Green, the Executive Director of the Patronato San Xavier, which is a nonsectarian, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization founded by Southern Arizona community leaders in 1978. The Patronato’s only purpose is to promote the restoration, maintenance and preservation of Mission San Xavier del Bac, a National Historic Landmark near Tucson, Arizona.
Also on the big show, Paul Bucky and Debra Schildhouse bring a little healing to the program with their Bio-Touch program, which they offer for free (donations always accepted) for anyone suffering from all sorts of pain and other health issues.
