Beginning Farmers

For beginning farmers who didn’t grow up on the family farm,
the business of farming can be intimidating to learn. Here in Vermont,
several mentoring programs help pair the experts with those just learning the
trade. We talk with UVM Extension
Associate Professor, Mary Peabody, who directs the Women’s Agricultural Network,
and with beginning farmer Christine Bourque, of Blue Heron Farm in Grand Isle. (Listen)


Also, former Vermont District Court Judge Shireen Fisher is
serving on a specially appointed panel that oversees cases of war crimes in Bosnia and Herzegovina. We talk with her from Sarajevo
about a recent high profile conviction. (Listen)

And, we hear from Cavendish residents who remember Russian
author Alexander Solzhenitsyn. (Listen)
