The Compost Pedallers (Austin, Tx) (#811H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

America is on a mission to lighten their environmental footprint while reducing waste going into landfills. Many urban and suburban homeowners know that composting is a great way to do both. Yet not everyone is ready to take the dive into managing a backyard heap of food scraps and yard debris. In Austin, locals can have the best of both words. The Compost Pedallers is a small eco-minded company on a big mission. Using the clean energy of pedal power, they'll bike to your door, pick up your weekly collection, and haul it off to a nearby farm to do the dirty work for you. Keeping it local and out of the landfill while producing an abundance of compost, it's a winning recipe and a business model that's as green as it gets and growing fast.

Urban Farm, Country Town - The Spark in Sparta (Sparta and Atlanta, GA) (#812H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

Little did Robert and Suzy Currey know that an invitation to lunch in a small Georgia town would forever change their lives. But that's exactly what happened. And now, in the town they've called home for the past 15 years, they're changing the lives of many others in the poorest county in the state. The Currey's early success with their backyard vegetable garden took off and continued to expand to new plots and neighboring properties. They needed help and locals needed jobs. That first garden on Elm Street started a spark that burns brighter with every season as they continue to expand the farm and create new opportunities for a town that's now growing in more ways than just a garden.
