Welcome Spring and Russell Ranch Barn Dance

Spring snail says 'hello!'

Welcome back to Local Dirt. We took quite the hiatus, but are back and excited to bring you more local dirtiness!

This week's show:

New CoHosts!
Welcome to our new Local Dirt co-hosts Anna Ruth Crittenden, Neda Yousefian and Jenn Heinlein. We took the first half hour of Local Dirt to play twenty questions with Anna 'Truth' and Neda. Jenn is living it up in Guatemala, but should be here next week to introduce herself.

Russell Ranch Barn Dance!
Join Students for Sustainable Agriculture and the Agriculture Sustainability Institute in bringing in the spring quarter with quite the event! On Friday, April 1st Driving With Fergus and Erik Hoffman will be leading us in quite an awesome Contra Dancing affair! Never contra danced before? Don't worry, you'll pick it up quick. Food at 7pm (potluck) and dancing at 8pm. The event will be held at the big barn at the Russell Ranch Sustainable Agriculture Research Facility (directions). From Davis it is simply west on Russell for 6 miles until you see the big LTRAS sign on the left, then up the path to the barn.
