Episode: "Digging in the Dirt" with George Irwin of Green Living Technologies International

 Join Kevin Gallagher's on this installment of "Digging in the Dirt" when his guest will be George Irwin Founder of Green Living Technologies International, LLC (GLTi), a privately held company manufacturing patented Green Living Walls, Green Living Roofs and is the global pioneer in Vertical Agriculture. George is a published author, and a leading resource and authority for green wall and roof technologies around the world. We will talk to George about growing food in tight spaces and get his opinion on Hydroponic growing, on which he has definitive views.

George's vision extends well beyond achieving his own entrepreneurial aspirations: His mission to help create solutions to the challenges of food insecurity and the dearth of job opportunities for at risk populations throughout cities around the world. His patented technology is quickly replacing complex mechanical systems and hydroponics with simple growing techniques that are organic and without fertilizers or other synthetic chemicals. GLTi large scale vertical farms are proving just how economic, viable and productive the state-of-the-art system is to maximizing small plots, parking areas, Brownfield’s, old factories and interior spaces within buildings to facilitate growing food and medical crops year-round.

Kevin Gallagher's "Balagan"

Heavy on the 60's & 70's, new artists, Boogie Blues, Blues-Rock, Alt-country, Folk, Funk, Acid Jazz and world music and Latin Jazz.. Drop in every other  Monday of the month, 4-7 p.m. for musical meanderings with Kevin Gallagher. He'll drop the bucket down WPKN's musical well and see what he drags up.

"I know where things will start out, but I'm never quite sure where we'll end up. It's all about playing any kind of music that fires me up, with the occasional Interview thrown in".

Most Mondays when I am on I will feature a segment I call "Digging in the Dirt",  where I talk to a guest working in and around agriculture, farming, gardening  and food issues like organics, seeds, GMO and the Bionutrient movement.

You can also hear a brief round-up of Southern Connecticut cultural events at 4:55 pm every Monday with "FC Buzz on the radio", brought to you by the Fairfield County Cultural Alliance!

Kevin shares every other Monday 4-7 p.m. with Pete Stewart.
