Yeah, you know the kids are all right. Check ‘em out, doing online video reports on toxins in potatoes and coming up with healthy snack ideas for the USDA. (The parents are helping out, too, of course, even urging the USDA to get its kid-produced PSAs out there more.)
Meanwhile, healthy-eating advocate Bryant Terry has a new online TV show, "Urban Organic." As its website says, the show “features cutting-edge chefs, urban farmers, and social innovators who are bringing urban agriculture to neighborhoods in America that need them most.”
The first segment features aquaponics deep in the heart of Oakland, California; the second tours the backyard farm of Novella Carpenter. There’s also a site blog and resource guides to accompany each episode. Watch ‘em!
