Earth Eats: Real Food, Green Living

Shop Like A Chef, Finally Farm Bill, Broccoli Soup

Shopping as a way of connecting with your town. Lawmakers reached a compromise on the farm bill. Uplands Peak rescues farm animals. Broccoli soup for dinner.

It really is about more than just going and buying your food and taking it home. It’s about economically your community but also socially, and that is an extremely important thing. It’s not always about nutrients.

Shopping as a way of getting in touch with your community. I chat with chef and author Clara Moore.

A farm bill, we finally have a farm bill! Amy Mayer talks to some of the players to figure out how a compromise finally came to pass.

We take a field trip to Uplands Peak Sanctuary to visit four very friendly pigs who were rescued and now get to live out the rest of their lives.

Harvest Public Media goes to Colorado to find out how state regulators are making sure marijuana-infused food is safe to eat.

And a soup recipe with Chef Daniel Orr, that’s great warm and also chilled.
