SOS: Save Our Soil (Episode #204H)

KQED Life: Sat, Sep 13, 2014 -- 4:30 AM

The top six inches of soil are the most precious, but least understood, ecosystem on earth - yet we continue to treat soil like dirt. FOOD FORWARD gets down and dirty with large-scale Midwestern composters, California carbon farmers reversing climate change and a West Virginia poultry farmer creating "biochar" from chicken poop. Explore new frontiers beneath our feet that just might save our soil.

Seeds of Change (Episode #203H)

KQED Life: Sat, Sep 13, 2014 -- 4:00 AM

Seeds represent hope, a new beginning. Amid battles over GMO crops and monocultures that dominate American farmlands, FOOD FORWARD travels to meet seed savers pursuing grassroots alternatives. From the dry deserts of Arizona to corn and soybean growers in Iowa and Illinois, genetic diversity does matter and the roots of change are taking hold.

The Meat of the Matter (Episode #202H)

KQED 9: Fri, Sep 5, 2014 -- 5:30 AM

Cheap meat is actually quite costly, taking its toll on America's health and the environment. The good news is it's now possible to have your steak and eat it, too. FOOD FORWARD meets a new breed of ranchers who are leading the red meat revolution by returning to traditional styles of raising cattle. Iowan bison ranchers, Georgian cattlemen and Californian cowgirls all have one thing in common - grass.

Go Fish! (Episode #201H)

KQED 9: Fri, Sep 5, 2014 -- 5:00 AM

By mid-century, 90 percent of the world's commercial fish may be tapped out. But we're not sunk yet. FOOD FORWARD sets sail with a different breed of fishermen who make their living on the water while treading lightly upon it. Meet old school fishermen in the Pacific Northwest reviving the tuna industry, young fishermen (and women) creating Community Supported Fisheries along the Eastern seaboard and the next generation of fish farmers in western Massachusetts.
