SOS: Save Our Soil (Episode #204H)

KQED Plus: Wed, Jul 24, 2019 -- 3:30 PM

The top six inches of soil are the most precious, but least understood, ecosystem on earth - yet we continue to treat soil like dirt. Get 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 Plus: Wed, Jul 17, 2019 -- 3:30 PM

Seeds represent hope, a new beginning. Amid battles over GMO crops and monocultures that dominate American farmlands, FF travels to meet seed savers pursuing grassroots alternatives.

The Meat of the Matter (Episode #202H)

KQED Plus: Wed, Jul 10, 2019 -- 3:30 PM

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. Meet 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 Plus: Wed, Jul 3, 2019 -- 3:30 PM

This program 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.
