Question. Why is the Vancouver Sun cold-calling me with a ‘promotion’ when I’m on the do not call list. Huh ? Why ?

Podcast – Urban Agriculture
I’ve started producing a series of podcasts about Urban Agriculture, hosted by Spring Gillard and David Tracey. The series will run on Spring’s website, CompostDiaries.com, as well as on VanGoGreen.
We recorded the first in the series on Tuesday at the YWCA downtown’s roof garden. It’s an interesting project, and all the food grown in the garden is taken to a women’s group on the downtown east side. You can read more about the rooftop garden / food project on the Y’s website.
Ted Cathcart runs the project, and he was kind enough to spend an hour with us explaining the project and discussing the challenges.
The podcast runs just over 18 minutes.

Dr. Mehret Mandefro Podcast
The PLAN Institute and BC Women’s Hospital recently asked me to record a podcast with Dr. Mehret Mandefro.
She’s an HIV/AIDS educator and activist who’s also the subject of an incredibly moving documentary called All of Us. Dr. Mandefro is the founding director of Truth Aids
You can find out more about her on her website.
In the podcast I think you’ll get a real sense of her inspiration and drive to make a difference – she’s got an incredibly dynamic personality and at the same time, is very down to earth and realistic about the challenges of health education.
It’s on the Plan Institute website here – you have to register on their site first in order to get it.
Or you can also listen to it here:
Thanks to Emily Apt of Pureland Pictures for permission to use clips from the film, All of Us .
Some shocking data (courtesy TruthAids website):
- For African American women ages 15 to 24, AIDS has been the leading cause of death for almost 10 years.
- HIV is the leading cause of death for African American men ages 35-44 (NCHS,2002)
- African American men are disproportionately affected by the HIV epidemic: AIDS diagnosis rate among African American was almost 11 times the rate among whites
** UPDATE **
Dr. Mandefro has just been appointed a White House Fellow. Details here
