Your Call: How are urban farms changing cities?

Jun 17, 2015

  

On the June 17th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about urban agriculture. Eighty percent of the US population lives in cities, further from farms than ever, but more and more city dwellers are growing their own food on empty lots or in their backyards. The film Growing Cities examines this trend from the Bay Area to Detroit.  How are urban farms revitalizing communities and changing the way we eat? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.

On the December 10th, 2014 edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation eco-chef and food justice activist Bryant Terry about his new book Afro-Vegan. Terry wants to us to use the holiday season to talk about building a healthy, ethical and sustainable food system for all. Many Americans over-eat during the holidays, while one in five households struggle with hunger. How can we ensure that nourishing foods are a universal right, not a privilege? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.

On today’s Your Call, we'll have a conversation with three winners of this year's David Brower Youth Awards, which honors young people for their achievements in the fields of environmental and social justice advocacy.
