Length: 11:48

We kick off this episode with a visit to the 2012 Sustainable Living Expo, a free event held at the Dixon Springs Agricultural Research Center in October 2012 that featured over 80 demonstrations and presentations. With guidance from event organizer Stephanie Brown, we explore several presentations of particular interest to expo guests, including demonstrations on how to construct a house with straw bales and how to replace broken wooden handles on hand tools, and a conversation with a young woman who keeps chickens for fun and to earn money for college. We also explore high tunnels, which extend the growing season of local foods, and examine how stream pasteurization of soil may help to eliminate diseases and inhibit weed growth.
