Steve Martinez of Pluma Feliz FarmsAugust 20, 2013 – Hour 2

On the newest edition of Sound Bites, we’re talking chickens! A diverse group of poultry farmers speak candidly about their work. Guests include: Carole Morrison of Bird’s Eye View Farm in Pokomoke City; Ted Wycall, third generation farmer at Greenbranch Farm in Salisbury, MD; and Steve Martinez of Pluma Feliz Farms in Baltimore County.

Then we close the show with Tom Horton, professor of Practice in Environmental Studies at Salisbury University and former Baltimore Sun environmental reporter, and Michele Merkel, co-Director of the Food and Water Justice Project at Food & Water Watch, who will talk about a plan for which Maryland Attorney General and gubernatorial candidate Doug Gansler has recently expressed public support: burning chicken litter as an alternative source of energy.
