Urban Roots on KGSR Tomorrow at 8:30 a.m.

I’m really looking forward to chatting with Max Elliott from Urban Roots and YouthLaunch tomorrow on KGSR 107.1 at 8:30 a.m. CT. We’ll be on the KGSR “Late Show” with Andy and Bryan and it will be streaming live online if you want to check it out.
I wrote about my experience at an Urban Roots community lunch this summer (scroll to the bottom of this hodgepodge blog) and first discovered this awesome non-profit while participating in last year’s Austin Urban Farm Bicycle Tour.
