From producer Leah Lemm on this week's Northern Voices:  Celebrating Ties to MN's Northland:

Marco Good went out on his own many years ago to live more simply and to learn the old logging style using horses. He’s done a lot, and now he passes along the knowledge he’s learned. We’ll hear a little about his journey into logging but also reflections on what he’s learned.


This week Northern Voices producer Leah Lemm visits Virginia, MN to speak with the Rutabaga Project Manager, Kelsey Gantzer. We'll find out about the various initiatives that The Rutabaga Project is developing.
