Today we debut our new show, The New American Economy. Every Monday at 1pm Dr. Patricia DeMarco joins Charles Showalter in hosting a program on exploring the link between manufacturing, energy, transportation and lifestyle.
This week we focus on urban and community farming, featuring City of Pittsburgh Open Space Manager Shelly Danko-Day. They discuss the plan to achieve Food Security through local and urban agriculture, and the process of transforming vacant land into productive use, the ordinances required, and the results they’re seeing.
