Peggy Day, local journalist, joins Robin Carpenter in discussion about the Western Weekend celebration of our ranching heritage and the strong showing by our ranching and ag communities. Also the upcoming opening of the Point Reyes Farmers Market on June 28th. For the second half of the show the conversation revolved around school lunches and what is happening in our own Shoreline Unified School District as well as nationally. Marc Matheson is a member of the Wellness Committee for SUSD and filled us in on the work and exploration that they are doing to make healthy food a priority and how this issue dovetails into the other Wellness measure they are looking to introduce to our schools.
