Community Revitalization through Sustainable Renovation

The Green and Main Project is like nothing we've seen. At it's heart is a desire to take existing structures, re-purpose them with sustainable methods and rebuild neighborhoods and communities and towns. The historic renovation of the building at 800 19th Street in Des Moines will allow it to be returned to full use from service provision, education, community meeting and living space. 


The second portion of the Green and Main Project is a focus on women and supportive programs that take a holistic approach to wellness, birth and life issues. To that end husband Chaden Halfhill and wife Cosette Boone sat down with us to discuss the project and the Kickstarter Campaign which ends shortly. Here is that conversation.

Small Business Spotlight - Iowa Soft Water

We turn on our Small Business Spotlight and shine it on Iowa Soft Water and its owner TJ Riley. With water being front and center in the news we thought this would be a timely interview. We start out the conversation learning more about his "other job" as a commercial airline pilot and then dive into his start-up story. A great conversation about two very different careers. Join us and listen in...
