Interviews with Robin Koch of KitchenShare, Virginia Chamlee of, and Julia Niiro of LetUmEat

The robustness of the sharing economy is something that makes Portland special. I'll be talking with Robin Koch about KitchenShare, an organization that lends kitchen tools to Portland residents.

There are a lot of questions about what to expect during a Donald Trump presidency, including his stance on food policy. I talked with Virginia Chamlee, the news reporter at, about her article What President Donald Trump Will Mean for US Food Policy.

In these divisive times, it's more important than ever to bring folks together through community. Julia Niiro and LetUmEat are doing just that by creating a platform that connects eaters and growers. 

We'll also feature our monthly segment with permaculturist Marisha Auerbach where we talk about garden tasks.
