The Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation, Helping At-Risk Youth in Annapolis and Beyond (E-51)

We all know about Cal Ripken and his baseball career. But what do we know about this foundation that he, his brother Billy, and his family started to honor the legacy of his father, Cal Ripken Sr?

Today, we speak with Steve Salem, the President and CEO of the Foundation and learn about the work they are dong across the country to help at-risk youth. From right here in Annapolis to North Dakota to California to Georgia to Oregon and beyond.  And Ability Fields. Programs with law enforcement. Healthy eating. STEM initiatives. Girls respecting each other and themselves. And more! The legacy of the Iron Man continues!

CRABCAKE: Annapolis Compost….Turning Trash into Treasure (August 2017)

This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs!  What is a Crabcake? Well, it’s a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20. In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

Today, Tim sits down with fellow gardening nerds, Anna Kramer and Karl Schrass, the owners and proprietors of Annapolis Compost. Before moving to Maryland in 2015, Anna and Karl spent four years in Germany, where separating food waste is a part of daily life. In Annapolis, however, they faced a lack of options and struggled to find a way to recycle their scraps. It was that search that sprouted the idea for Annapolis Compost.
