Episode #104
Green Buildings
Green Buildings profiles homes, a school and even the third busiest sports and concert venue in the nation to illustrate how energy efficient buildings reduce our carbon footprint in remarkable ways. Atlanta's Phillips Arena was retrofitted with energy efficient systems and it now uses 21% less electricity than other arenas of similar size and the energy the facility saves in one year could power 111 private homes. This episode also profiles Arabia Mountain High School which focuses on environmental learning throughout its curricula using Promethean boards (to reduce paper and enhance learning), outdoor classrooms, and even energy- and water-efficient rest rooms. Green Buildings compares modular, new, completely green homes to modified older homes with energy efficient systems and opens by touring the Solar Decathlon in Washington, DC for a glimpse of the cutting edge green building designs being developed across the globe. Sponsored by the Department of Energy, the Decathlon is a competition showcasing design and designers, many of them college students, from Germany to California.

Episode #102
Children & Nature
Remember how kids used to play outside every day, running thorough the neighborhood until sunset? In this episode of EcoSense for Living we explore "nature deficit disorder," a term coined by Richard Louv (author, Last Child in the Woods), to describe the physical, mental, and emotional effects that children suffer when they lose contact with nature. Richard pinpoints how we came to be a nation separated from the natural world and how we can reverse it. We'll also hike with psychologist, Dr. David Busch, who uses nature therapy to help kids with ADD and ADHD. Then we'll experience how urban communities reconnect kids to nature through gardening, beekeeping, and creating safe untamed places where kids can still run wild. Find out how you can reconnect kids to their natural roots in your part of the world.

Episode #108
Food Fight
The quality and accessibility of food has been a hot button issue throughout the ages. Lack of secure food has been the source of revolutions and toppled governments. In "Food Fight," we look at the tug of war over America's diet. From questions plaguing genetically-modified ingredients to wheat-free/gluten-free concerns to the rapid decline of bees, we explore pressures on the safety and security of our food supply. Rich Food, Poor Food authors, Jayson and Mira Calton, guide us through a grocery store and reveal how to make smart choices and avoid unwanted ingredients. Cardiologist Dr. William Davis, author of Wheat Belly, tells us his surprising results after removing wheat from his patients' diets. Filmmaker and concerned father Jeremy Siefert tells his journey trying to understand the impact of genetically-modified food on his children's health. Bee experts sound the alarm about the decline of our most valuable pollinators and what we can do to make sure they continue supplying us with fresh fruits and vegetables.

Episode #107
Take Back The Farm
There's a "growing" awareness in the U.S. about our food...where it comes from, how it's grown, and what exactly it takes to feed all of us nutritious, earth-conscious meals. In this episode, we explore farmers of all types in all kinds of situations. From Ron Finley, a renegade gardener in south central Los Angeles to south Georgia farmer, Will Harris, we'll meet people who are changing the way we think about and consume food. Lawn and garden expert Paul Tukey gives us some surprising revelations about how we moved from growing our own food to our fascination with perfect lawns. We'll get the story from a suburban man who became a local outlaw for "growing too many vegetables." We wrap with a quick trip to Chipotle, a national chain that's taking a local approach to their food supply.
