The Local Traveler
On this episode we learn more about communities and companies that are using synergy in food systems. We stop at a building known as The Bread Box to learn about the symbiotic relationship between businesses and their collective use of an indoor aquaponics system. Next, we pack our boots for a day in the orchard to work with Glean KY. Learn how this volunteer organization is ending hunger in Kentucky, one glean at a time.
