E-mail Print

This episode takes viewers to the Ivanhoe neighborhood in Kansas City, Mo., where residents are not only growing community gardens and urban orchards but also operating food stands to sell their products in what is recognized as a food desert. You'll see how a Juniper Gardens project in Kansas City, Kan., is helping refugees use farming techniques to develop viable business plans while improving access to fresh, healthy food in the urban core. And you'll visit one of more than 100 local schoolyard gardens where schoolchildren are becoming more connected to fresh, healthy food, and learning where food comes from and why that matters.
