San Miguel County –which hovers around 8,000 people and is tucked into the Southwest corner of Colorado – can best be described as a “tale of two counties.” But a new farm-to-community food-share program serves as a bridge between communities.

Not only do local yucca plants provide an edible fruit; the fibers can be used as cord, the leaves as needles, and the roots as shampoo. KDNK’s Raleigh Burleigh visited the Ute Learning Garden in Grand Junction to learn more about traditional applications of local plants.

The term "food justice" refers to a community's right to grow, sell, and eat healthy food that is fresh, nutritious, affordable, and culturally-appropriate. In this three-part series, Big Fat Farm Show host Kellie Pettyjohn talks with people who are all working in different ways to address the issue of food justice in their communities. These individuals were all part of recent food justice workshops that were held at Fort Lewis College on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

In the third and final part in this series, Kellie talks with Stephanie and Amanda from Project Feed The Hood, an Albuquerque organization working to provide lower income neighborhoods access to healthy foods.


On this episode of the Big Fat Farm Show, host Kellie Pettyjohn interviews James Hunter, Farm Director of We Over Me Farm at Paul Quinn College.  The college made the news when they plowed under their football field to plant a garden, leading to a cascade of changes in the local food system.
