Insight: Sowing the Next Generation of Farmers / War's Effects on Health / "Living Wild" / Wangari Maathai


Sowing the Next Generation of Farmers Older farmers are trying to cultivate the next generation of young farmers before it's too late -the average age of a California farmer is 58.  We'll speak with longtime farmer Michael O'Gorman who has come out of retirement to recruit young people and military veterans into an agrarian life.  25-year-old farmer Hallie Muller also joins us.

Dr. Victor Sidel Longtime peace advocate, Dr. Victor Sidel, spoke to the Physicians for Social Responsibility Sunday night about the impact war has on health.  Dr. Sidel was one of the founders of PSR and the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War.  He is Distinguished University Professor of Social Medicine at Montefiore Medical Center and Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City.

Living Wild "Living Wild: Gardening, Cooking and Healing with Native Plants of the Sierra Nevada" encourages people not only to grow what they eat, but love what they eat, and do it with native plants.  We'll speak with author Alicia Funk about her methods to reduce our carbon footprint with sustainable gardening and landscaping.
