We begin with a recent town hall on the Eastern Shore of Maryland where we discuss poultry industry expansion and hear how concerned citizens are beginning to organize to keep their rural communities and local waterways healthy.  Our panelists include Dr. Jillian Fry from the Johns Hopkins University Center for a Livable Future; Dr. Kirkland Hall, a long-time member of Somerset County’s NAACP branch and the UMES chapter adviser; Maria Payan, consultant with Socially Responsible Agriculture Project and with the Assateague Coastal Trust; and Backbone Corridor Neighbors Association spokesperson, Lisa Inzerillo.

We then look into an important educational opportunity: the Future Harvest-CASA Young Farmer Training Program with Sarah Sohn, Future Harvest-CASA’s Program Manager; Ausar-Mesh Amen, current trainee and manager of the Fannie Lou Hamer & Sundiata Acoli Community Farm; and Laura Beth Resnick, program graduate, soon-to-be trainer in the program, and owner/farmer at Butterbee Farm.
