Greetings from GMCR & KURU

What Time Is It?  It's...

It's Radio Thyme!

That’s Right!  You can’t get too much of a good thing so on the heels of our great success with last year’s Cookin’ With the Radio we’re ready for the 2nd Course…

Radio Thyme: Using Herbs for Food & Medicine

We’ll be posting additional info toot sweet  but – like last year – we need your recipe submissions and the deadline is September 1st so please do send an email with your recipe to cookbook@gmcr.org or call Monica Rude at 575.535.2860.

ok?  OK!


As you are probably aware, 2015 marks the 70th Anniversaries of the detonation of the 1st nuclear weapon at the Trinity Site in the Tularosa Basin of New Mexico and the US nuclear attacks upon Hiroshima and Nakagaski.

In observance of these earth shattering events that have shaken the world and threaten its ultimate destruction, GMCR & KURU are presenting a series of programs addressing a range issues including nuclear power, weapons & waste.  Follow these links more info, broadcast schedules or to listen to the podcasts.


2015 Herb & Flower Fiesta!Yes!  The 3rd Annual Herb & Flower Fiesta was a fine affair.  The herb classes and scrumptious lunch at The Volunteer Center were well attended and warmly received and the Bouquets on Saturday at the Farmers Market were exquisitely creative as always.  And we tucked away a few ducats as well.

Before we turn our attention to the next series of events we want to profusely thank our sponsors…

Bear Creek Herbs / Country Girls Nursery
Evergreen Garden Club / Frisco Farms
Gila River Ranch / Lone Mountain Natives
Rose Valley RV Ranch / Shevek & Company
Silver City Food Coop / Volunteer Center
Voyage Botanica / Wentz Electric

Please click here for a wrapup, review, pics, winners, more thanks to the many folks that contributed, and general debriefing on the festivities and attendant fol-de-rol.


psaWe pursue our goal of providing
A Voice & A Choice in a number of ways and PSAs / Public Service Announcements for non-profit organizations and similarly focused civic groups are part of that effort.

In order to better serve more organizations, we are providing a new method of submitting PSAs that we hope will make the process – and outcome – more convenient, efficient and timely.  Please visit our PSA page for details.


Early in our development we envisioned 1,000 members as a critical mass to insure stable operations and an editorial independence.  We are greatly encouraged by your support in our recent Pledge Drive which resulted in dozens of new members, but we still have a long way to go to reach that 1,000 member threshold.

For those of you that missed the Pledge Drive or Give Grandly, it’s never the wrong time to become a member and supporter so here’s an opportunity to Step Up.

It’s easy to become a member… Just click here > GMCR.org/support and you can become a member at various levels of support, make a one time donation in any amount, or create a monthly subscription via PayPal.  Scroll down that page for the option to pay by credit card without having a PayPal account.

Or if you prefer, Click Here to download and print a membership form, stick it in an envelope with your check payable to GMCR and drop it in the mail or save a stamp and just drop it in the mail slot in our front door at…
