KUNC Radio: Interview with Katie Dunker, CSU Statewide Master Gardener Coordinator (2020)
- Now that Mother’s Day has come and gone, and the weather is warming, many of you may be heading out to your gardens. And, some of you may also be planting your very own victory garden. Katie Dunker, the statewide coordinator for the Colorado Master Gardener Program at Colorado state University Extension, joined us with some gardening tips, and to discuss the university’s modern day victory garden project, Grow and Give.
- The loss of work and COVID-19 are factors behind an uptick in food insecurity. The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities said 8% of adults in Colorado didn’t have enough to eat in July. And 12% said they didn’t have enough money to feed their children. State and federal programs can help, but as KUNC’s Stephanie Daniel reports, people are also using their gardens to support their neighbors in need.
