Episode #8 Earthman Lanny Smith!
On today’s show I am privileged to be speaking with Earthman Lanny Smith. Lanny is an award-winning performing artist and songwriter who uses the power of music, the Arts and the web to bring an important message to people about our very own Planet Earth. Lanny is a traveling good steward who speaks and sings about recycling, reducing use, picking up litter and a thousand other ways that we can each learn to be good stewards of our planet.
Remember neighbors every Wednesday until the end of October is the East Nashville Farmer’s Market in Shelby Park. Come join your neighbors and over two dozen vendors who gather in the Grove each Wednesday to bring you the best produce, food items and home made goods that Nashville and surrounding areas has to offer.
