Good Dirt Radio’s mission is to educate the public about the connection between individual actions and a healthy future for our planet and encourage citizens to embrace positive solutions. By enthusiastically reporting on simple, creative, resource and energy saving examples from around the country, we seek to inspire listeners to replicate these actions. Our goal is nationwide distribution of our programs supporting the emergence of a grassroots environmental movement committed to a renewed, deeper, more positive relationship with the world that supports us all. As a non-profit organization, we have no political or religious affiliation.
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 Radio™ currently plays primarily across the South Western US 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.
