105.9 FM The Radiator is a proud media sponsor of the Jazz For Peace Concert, a world-class cultural event featuring a performance by Rick Dellaratta and local jazz musicians in Burlington at the Root Center (Burlington location TBA) on April 30th. The event is Jazz For Peace's 800th benefit concert since their initial concert at the United Nations. Please call (802) 598-3067 or visit http://www.therootcenter.org/jfp for ticket information and any questions.

The National Gardening Association has partnered with The Root Center to cultivate organic produce for local outreach centers. The NGA is leasing a one-acre site within their Vermont Garden Park (located in South Burlington) to the Root Center where they will cultivate in-ground crops, construct hoop houses and build the "Garden of the Future," a passive-solar heated dome greenhouse that will enclose a year-round aquaponics garden. The Root Center's volunteer staff will use these spaces to raise organic fish, fruits, vegetables and flowers for the local outreach organizations (notably the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf) and host education events.
