Dennis Keeney was with us to talk about his autobiography "The Keeney Place" which was just released last month. Dennis carried his story from a lively description of the life of a farm boy in the 1940s and 50s through university training in scientific agriculture that led him to become the first director of the Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture. Cornelia Flora was also in the studio to carry forward reflections about the significance of sustainable agriculture and prospects for the road ahead. Later in the program Erv Klaas joined us to discuss Aldo Leopold and "The Land Ethic," part of the event "Ames Reads Leopold", March 2:00 - 5:00 PM, at the Ames Public Library.

Marty Miller concluded the program with an introduction to the music of The Harmaleighs, who will be in concert at the Pantorium on Wednesday, March 11, at 7:00 PM.
