Homer Grown
Saturdays at 11 a.m. (Seasonal)

Homer Grown is a locally produced gardening show  exploring gardening, agriculture, and local producers. Every other Saturday at 11am with host Desiree Hagen.

  • For the final episode of Homer Grown's 2nd season, we interview the last member of the Fox River Cattlemen's Association, Mark Marette.
  • Our second installment of Homer Grown's series on the Fox River Cattlemen features Otto Kilcher and Akaky Martushev. They discuss some of the challenges with raising cattle at the head of Kachemak Bay, "supernatural" qualities of cows and the pseudoscience of why ravens chase hawks. We had a long list of cattle-themed sequel names. The title of this episode is a reference to the 1984 movie Breakin'2: Electric Boogaloo. The Wikipedia entry for Breakin' 2 noted: 'the subtitle "Electric Boogaloo"... has entered the popular culture lexicon as a snowclone nickname to denote an archetypal sequel. '
  • For this episode we interview Chris Rainwater for part one of a two part episode featuring the four members of the Fox River Cattlemen's Association. Chris about homesteading at the head of the bay (the land he refers to as "where god lost her shoes"), a history of the Cattlemen's Association, and some of the current struggles facing the cattlemen.
