Hope for Heroes: The Farmer Veteran Coalition (Davis, CA) (Episode #807H)

KQED Life: Sun, Jul 30, 2017 -- 9:00 AM

The Farmer Veteran Coalition Ask almost any returning war veteran and they'll tell you that the hardest part of the war is not going, it's coming home. The toll it takes on our soldiers is often more debilitating to the body and mind than the combat they faced. Many return with scars and baggage that makes it even harder for them to find gainful employment. Fortunately, organizations are helping connect veterans with good jobs and new careers that can literally change and save the lives of our heroes. The Farmer Veteran Coalition is one such organization with a simple mission: to mobilize veterans to feed America by cultivating a new generation of farmers and food leaders. In this episode, we meet one veteran-turned-farmer and share the story of how his life - and that of his family - went from hopeless to thriving, thanks to the Coalition connection.

Gardening in the Desert Southwest (Phoenix, Az) (Episode #806H)

KQED Life: Sun, Jul 23, 2017 -- 9:00 AM

When it comes to gardening, one size most certainly does not fit all. What grows well in the cool Pacific Northwest would melt in the Florida heat. What thrives in the mild Southeast might never be hardy enough to handle a typical Midwestern winter? For many of us unfamiliar with the desert southwest, we may believe that nothing can grow there at all. Yet it boasts one of the most horticulturally diverse regions in the country. It just takes a little local knowledge to master the nuances of growing a productive garden there. In this episode, we explore some of the unique beauty, challenges, and benefits to gardening in this part of the country where water is scarce and the brutal heat is the only predictable part of the weather.

Redeeming Your Ground (Atlanta, Ga) (Episode #805H)

KQED Life: Sat, Jul 1, 2017 -- 1:30 PM

How often do we move into a house that provides adequate shelter but does nothing to beckon you outside beyond the walls? That was the case for the Scott family... until they decided to do something about it. What started as an experimental small vegetable garden at the back of the driveway has since evolved into a livable and inviting backyard that is now an essential part of their everyday living space. See how this family's efforts to redeem their ground opened up a whole new world of life in the great outdoors, and how many of the simple changes they made will inspire you in your own backyard.
