May 17, 2012 – Hour 1

On this week’s episode of Sound Bites, we talk with young farmer Orlando Johnson, who is restoring his family’s farm, dating back to the 19th century, in Calvert County. Then, we pay a visit to former Maryland Congressman Wayne Gilchrest to hear about the environmental education program he is running for young people in Kent County. We’ll also stop by the Real Foods Hopkins community garden and speak with students Raychel Santo and Wei-ting Chen. Closing out this hour, Scott Edwards from Food and Water Watch talks about the close ties between Governor O’Malley and one of Perdue’s lawyers.
