Local Food 2: Community Connections in the Urban Soil

As local food systems evolve to incorporate locally-grown items, social service agencies are uncovering some surprising community benefits in the trend, particularly in some urban centers. In parts of St. Louis, for example, small-scale food production and distribution are helping build unique connections for veterans, recovering drug addicts and others in need. In part two of our week-long series on local food, Harvest Public Media's Tim Lloyd has this story of a little farm that's become fertile ground for people, plants, and human potential.

You can learn more about this story -- and find more agricultural news online -- at This special website features news, video, podcasts and blogs about agriculture in the Midwest. That web address, once again, is Harvest Public
