The Seed Farmer; Dr. John Navazio-the Organic Seed
Home gardeners are increasingly drawn to heirloom seeds for their unusual flavors, colors and of course, their cultural heritage.

In this episode, we visit the Organic Seed Alliance and meet Dr. John Navazio - one of the pioneers in preserving the cultural heritage of our garden seed supply. 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.

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.
