The Roots Watering Hole podcast series is provided through generous support from the Kalliopeia Foundation. Thanks to their support we have begun the journey to share space in elevated wisdom from numerous voices of people who do good in the world in various forms while providing information to our target communities. Roots Watering Hole produces oral narratives for a multitude of purposes. One track is a monthly gardening education and food literacy series co-hosted by Orrin Williams, the Food Systems Coordinator at the University of Illinois at Chicago and Soil Enthusiast Dr. Akilah Martin. The second track is devoted to independent content created by Orrin Williams and Dr. Akilah Martin as co-hosts and individual producers. The independent track focuses on topics related to our ecosystem as a whole, health and wellness, lifestyle, the arts and culture, and humanities. Both tracks will include guests from multiple walks of life, expertise, wisdom, and disciplines. While our focus is centered on BIPOC communities, we believe that all open-minded people interested in our general well-being as a nation and planet Earth will find the content, we produce useful.
