  Wednesday, October 30 – The National Soil Project at Northeastern University is collecting and analyzing organic farm soils from all 50 States for comparison with conventional samples, and they’re looking for soil submissions. The goal is to quantify the improved health of organic soils. Joining us are Professor Geoffrey Davies and principal research scientist Elham Ghabbour. ~~~ Ashley Thornberg joins us with another story or two from the Sundogs and Sunflowers folklore collection. “The Man in the Long Coat,” “The Hailstorm,” and The Rancher and the Coyote.” ~~~ Need a kickstart for your writing project? Accomplished writers Debra Marquart and Taylor Brorby will soon be traveling through western ND leading writing workshops called “Our People. Our Places. Our Stories.” They join us to discuss their writing careers and what you can expect when you attend one of their events. ~~~ Commentary from Bruce Berg, “No Problem.”
