Earth Eats: Real Food, Green Living

It Was A Very Good Year

We had a blast this year speaking with researchers, visiting farms and eating great food. In this week's podcast, we take a look back at highlights from 2013.

In the winter, if your coop is dry and free of drafts — you want ventilation, but not wind whistling through — then you’re fine.

But how do you deal with frozen water bowls? And do chickens need extra heat in their coops? Jana Wilson has all the answers you need.

Some suburbs are considering local farms more valuable as neighbors than, say, golf courses. Harvest Public Media talks about that new trend.

And then we look back at a great year of interviews and recipes. Some of my favorites recipes were for breakfast dishes, we have two of those using grapefruit and chia seeds.

An excerpt of my conversation with Peter Todd about food choice.

And we hold a microphone in front of the Bread & Roses guys as they teach us about sheet mulching.
