Podcast Series – Urban Agriculture http://ff.im/4vNtW
We recorded the first in the series on Tuesday at the YWCA downtown’s roof garden. It’s an interesting project, and all the food grown in the garden is taken to a women’s group on the downtown east side. You can read more about the rooftop garden / food project on the Y’s website.
Ted Cathcart runs the project, and he was kind enough to spend an hour with us explaining the project and discussing the challenges.
The podcast runs just over 18 minutes.

You can find out more about her on her website.

It’s on the Plan Institute website here – you have to register on their site first in order to get it.
