Hyper Local - Heirloom Apples & Craft Beers: New H
Chain grocery stores are only interested in food that ships well and stores long. That is why with over 2,500 different types of apples grown in the United States, only 6 can be found in the typical store. But by eating local and in season, we are exposed to incredible flavors not found anywhere else and we can savor the food products of creative artisans who only source local ingredients. In this episode, we visit an organic farmer who sells 70 different varieties of heirloom apples to learn the secrets of peak flavor and how we can grow some of these varieties ourselves. And we visit a nano-brewery who takes production full circle by only sourcing local grains, fruits and vegetables while repurposing all their byproducts back to local farmers.

We learn all about seed stewardship, why it is important and what we can do in our own backyards to help preserve these special plants for many more generations to come.

The Power of Worms
While worms are an important ingredient of the soil, they can steal the show in the compost pile. With vermicompost, worms do all the work of breaking down and decomposing kitchen scraps, turning it into nutrient rich castings from the garden. They take the garbage and turn it into black gold for the garden. This episode explores home vermicomposting, visits a commercial harvesting operation, and tours a "zero waste" company turning warm waste into a multi-million dollar operation as a natural fertilizer alternative.
