Locavores and Yard-sharing

Season 12 Episode 1208 | 26m 46s

Eating local and seasonal is more than just a foodie trend. While some people have the time or the land to grow their own food, and some have the expertise, few people have it all. That’s given birth to a cottage industry that creates win-win partnerships and reaches far beyond in-town garden plots. Meet the young urbanites who are changing the way we grow and eat.
