About Growing with the Grain: Upstate New York used to be a breadbasket of grain growing. As grain production shifted westward in search of a more ideal climate for growing, the Hudson Valley lost these vital crops. Scientists, farmers, bakers, and brewers collaborate in a grain trial that hopes to produce a new generation of grain suited for the northeast, bringing sustainable and more localized grain production back to the region.
About A Living River: Despite its polluted reputation, the Hudson River is teeming with life. From the tiny Glass Eels to the massive 14 foot long Atlantic Sturgeon, a vital web of life defies decades of oppression. Organizations like Riverkeeper use lessons learned from its past as a bustling commercial fishery to its present as an ecosystem in recovery in order to protect its future.
