Boone Street FarmSeptember 2, 2014 – Segment 3

It’s a brand new episode of Sound Bites. We’ll talk about a recent article from The Nation that asks the question Can GMOs Feed a Hot and Hungry World? We’ll speak with the author of that article, Madeline Ostrander, who is a contributing editor to YES! Magazine and a freelance writer based in Seattle. We’ll also be joined by Dr. Eduardo Blumwald who studies genetic engineering at UC Davis; and Patty Lovera, Assistant Director of Food & Water Watch, where she coordinates the Food Team.

Then, we are joined by Alison Gillespie, author of Hives in the City: Keeping Honey Bees Alive in an Urban World, for a fascinating conversation on urban beekeeping.

To close out this week’s Sound Bites, former Sound Bites intern Maggie Dier brings us a recipe for ground cherry salsa from Cheryl Carmona and Dana Rushovich of Boone Street Farm, an urban farm in East Baltimore.
