Composting and recycling at school isn't just about eco-friendly waste diversion. It also provides students with a powerful lesson in sound environmental practice that they'll carry with them for the rest of their lives. The message is simple: what comes from the earth can be returned to enrich it, so it can provide for us again and again. How to get started? Today's guests, from San Francisco, CA and Northampton, MA, will tell you how: Start small. Champion your early adopters. Develop educational and marketing tools to enlist the support of the entire school community. Or use materials from other districts--there's lots out there already! Thanks to today's sponsor, Cain Vineyard & Winery.

"A big part of San Francisco's 'Zero Waste' initiative hopes to be achieved through education... we have a 63% landfill diversion rate in San Francisco schools." [6:00]

"We prefer starting with the kids and hope the adults catch on... We understand the power that kids have." [14:20]

"We did underestimate how difficult it would be to get all of the students to sort their food waste properly; it was difficult to get everyone on board." [27:30]

Learn about the social and economic implications of the supermarket on this week's episode of A Taste of the Past. Linda Pelaccio talks with University of Minnesota History Professor Dr. Tracey Deutsch about "building a housewives' paradise." Tune into this program to learn about the inception of the supermarket as an American institution in the 1930s. Find out how supermarkets aimed to appeal to women through their interior design, layout, and overall aesthetic. How did local food pricing regulations cause some grocery stores to fail, and others to thrive? Tune into this episode to learn how issues of gender, class, and race are tied up in the success of the American supermarket. This program has been brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery. Today's music has been provided by Pamela Royal.

"The very first supermarkets did feature super low prices... They were hugely popular, but then many of them went out of business. If you cut your prices too low, you're not going to be able to stay in business!" [11:10]

"Having predictable sales became more important to these larger stores." [26:15]
