Using Astrology For Gardening And Our Song Of The Week On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, it’s spring planting season. Sarah Hall, an associate professor of agriculture and natural resources at Berea College, is the author of a new book, “Sown in the Stars: Planting by the Signs.” Inside Appalachia Producer Bill Lynch spoke with Hall about gardening using astrology.

Also, in this show, this week’s episode of Mountain Stage was recorded at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in the Terrace Theater in Washington, D.C. Our Song of the Week is by acoustic music icon Peter Rowan, who has been coming to Mountain Stage since 1985. On this version of “From My Mountain (Calling You),” Rowan is accompanied on fiddle by The High Hawks’ Tim Carbone, who you’ll also hear on this week’s episode.
