It’s spring- celebrate with Nicole Taylor and Hot Grease! Nicole is joined in the studio by Faith Gilbert of The Letterbox Farm Collective. Hear how five friends joined up to create a community farming effort that crosses state lines. What tips does Faith have for New Yorkers who want to grow some of their own food and herbs? Later, Nicole sits down with Sonya Samuel from Bacchanal Sauce. Hear about Sonya’s Caribbean roots, and how her sauce reflects her heritage and her neighborhood of Crown Heights. Nicole tastes the sauce live on air, and gives it her seal of approval. Donate to the Bacchanal Sauce Kickstarter, and don’t forget – “it’s a party!” Thanks to our sponsor, White Oak Pastures. Music provided by The California Honeydrops.
