Community Supported Agriculture, Energy Independence and The Dirty Dozen Brass Band Featured This Week On Sustainable Georgia

Sustainable Georgia celebrates the Autumnal Equinox and bemoans gas lines this week in a broadcast-online pinata bursting with good stuff, including Josephine Bennett's feature on Davis Farms, the Community Supported Agricultural(CSA) project in Roberta, Georgia. We talk about the indirect cost of oil (among other things) with Jay Hakes, Director of the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library, about his new book A Declaration of Energy Independence. Keely Walker from GPB TV's Georgia Outdoors drops by to talk about their upcoming season premiere next week and give some trenchant facts about fire ecology. The Isla Earth feature covers ongoing developments in the attempt to find a greener form of jet fuel. And recycled music rolls out at the end of this week's program with the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, and their cover of Marvin Gaye's Mercy Mercy Me(The Ecology).
