World Water Day/Heroic Food

March 28, 2017

More than 663 million people live without a safe water supply close to home, according to the UN. With World Water Day having been celebrated on March 22nd, we examine the big water issues along with solutions with Pacific Institute Senior Research Associate Laura Feinstein.

Heroic Food helps men and women returning from military service who can face unemployment, social dislocation, a loss of a sense of purpose and lowered self esteem by preparing them for careers in sustainable farming, agricultural trades, and food entrepreneurship. Heroic Food director Leora Barish is our guest.

We’re also joined by Chris Higgins of Urban Ag News on the latest in urban farming.
