Independent Media Must Stay Strong!


Local public stations like KZYX are unique because our daily programming is tailored to the communities we serve. We have the means to build bridges between those communities no matter how far apart they may be.

                  KZYX exists because of you. In these uncertain times, our mission to keep our listeners informed, entertained, and connected is more critical than ever. As the year draws to a close, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to the station you rely on for updates of all kinds – local, regional, national, and international.

                  This December, we’re trying something new to complement our traditional year-end outreach. KZYX is taking part in a nationwide fundraising effort, sponsored by the National Federation of Community Broadcasters, a network of small stations like ours, dedicated to supporting each other’s efforts to keep independent media strong. Called “GiveBig to MyStation”, the campaign is a 48-hour event for local public stations across the nation on December 29th and 30th. Your donation comes directly to KZYX, but by adding your voice to this effort, you are encouraging the work of community stations like ours all over the country. You can learn more about it by visiting the GiveBig to MyStation website.

                  Whether you send in your donation today, in the enclosed envelope, or or donate through the GiveBig to MyStation campaign, your contribution is critical to the survival of a rare and precious resource - independent media - right here in Mendocino County. Thanks for doing what you can!

Jaye Alison Moscariello and Bill Taylor brought local experts for a discussion of what is currently going on in this crazy early season.  The archive for this show is at:

Not covered in the show but in a parking lot conversation after were some excellent tips: The best way to deal with heavy clay soil is to build a raised bed on top with good soil.  This next one may have been covered on the show but led me to immediate action: for incoming beetle pests, a lightweight shade cloth (30%) lasts many years while floating row covers burn out after 1 season.  I looked at a few local sources and found Sparetime supply, Mark's recommendation, to have the 30% at a reasonable price.  However, the clerk who carried it out for me said the newer material is lighter weight and does not last as long as the older one.  The change came about 5 years ago.  Still, he said his new material has lasted 5 years so far.  Mark mentioned ways to extend its life: get it out of the sun, in a rodent-proof barrel, when not in use.

In the show Tim mentioned thinning fruit to a fist width apart.  Check the archive for more of the show.  I will close with 2+ paragraphs Mark had intended to share on the program:

"Gardening is really all about being there, in the now, and responding. It¹s
all about observation, really seeing what your plants need, loving your
plants, asking them what they need, listening to them, treating them like
people, really. Inspect your plants, head to toe, every day. Is there a
problem? There usually is a problem, which can be remedied early on before
the plant is set back in it¹s season. Once you done this for many seasons,
you already have a leg up on what is going on. You may have forgotten, but
you¹ll notice things more quickly ‹ little things, tiny little things. Oh
yes, I remember that from last year!

Every minute there is a problem, believe me. When I walk out that door in
the morning, I feel like god opening the gate into the real world. Every
plant is speaking at me to give it some attention. No, I am not a
schizophrenic. They actually do need something, a tie here, a pinch there, a
collar, some shade, some water, less water. It is a dialogue. It is a
puzzle. Every plant is a life trying to fill its destiny in a given time
window, and we are there to help, to push it along, to get a jump on the
season. Every season has its window. Miss the time window and you likely
have missed that crop for the year.

So there are a million things to learn in the plant world. We created the
garden world. We are the god in the garden. We need to play the role of
benign ruler well. "  --Mark Albert

Community Advisory Board to Meet in Ukiah

Meetings of the Community Advisory Board are open to the public, and time is allotted for public comment.
