We welcome your ideas, stories and feedback.


With knowledge of the environmental crises we face, the Good Dirt Radio Board formed with passion, to spread messages about innovative ways that consumers can change the course of climate history. Our concept was launched in February, 2004 and Good Dirt Radio aired its first program in April 2004. Reports concern issues that are relevant, beneficial, examples of change-inspiring stewardship of the Earth’s commons. The board members and staff bring a wide variety of experience and skill into the mix, blending these toward the common goal. Good Dirt Radioâ„¢ currently plays primarily across the southwestern U.S. and is expanding to a growing, national audience with Weekly Wakeup Call, a series of spots on attainable examples of positive environmental solutions that benefit local ecosystems of the world.
