Agritourism might be in Oceanside’s future. Ag-Tourism has been called niche tourism and contains a number of strategies including farm to table relationships between local farmers and restaurants. It’s opportunities for visitors to stay at local Bed & Breakfasts and hotels and participate in the planting and harvesting of local produce. Recently KOCT’s Beverly Woodworth attended the first workshop designed to explore the many possibilities that could transform and protect the 4,000 acres of agriculture in South Morro Hills. Check out this KOCT News Brief about the workshop held at Melba Bishop Recreation Center.
Oceanside Spectrum is a great way to get the word out about your organizations fundraisers, events and needs. WE tape a new program every month and each guest is interviewed by Host Elaine Swann.
Don’t forget to watch Elaine on the new FOX reality series Kicking & Screaming every Thursdays, 9pm on the Fox Network!! (I hope she survives so she can continue to host our Spectrum programs)
Two weeks ago at our Spectrum taping I walked by the Green Room where guests wait before going on the air and did a double take followed by celebrity fawning. Tennis great and two-time Grand Slam Rod Laver was in the house!
He was there to invite viewers to attend the Mary Laver Memorial Tennis Event on April 8th with proceeds to benefit the Hospice of the North Coast. The event will be at the Omni La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad. Rod was with the Director of Development for Hospice, Shelley Dew. I was shameless in asking to be included in a picture with Shelley and two famous people Rod & Elaine! Look for the program on KOCT.ORG
