Destination DIY is an locally-produced radio show with stories about creativity. It returns to the airwaves Oct. 19 and 26 on OPB radio at noon.

Hosted by Julie Sabatier, this is not a “how-to” show. It goes beyond home improvement and crafts to explore ways people are working with limited resources to create rather than consume the world around them.

Oct. 26 features stories about house construction, moving by bike, “hacking” reality, and human space flight. You’ll also hear about host Sabatier’s own DIY project: growing all of her own wedding flowers.
