This week Growing Good and host Alessandra-Maria Iavarone revisit an important and urgent issue: the continued push by energy companies to extract natural gas through hydrofracking which has been shown to leeches toxic chemicals into ground and drinking water. With the help of activist and mom Silvia Kolbowski, Growing Good keeps you updated on the action alerts that are going on in NY and the Northeast and how you can do your part to make sure our water is safe. Later, the show lightens up as Eldon Scott, the president of Urban Spaces NYC, joins in the conversation to talk about the famous and festive holiday markets Urban Spaces put on every year at Union Square, Lincoln Center, and the Dekalb Market in Brooklyn. This episode is sponsored Heritage Foods USA.

This week on the Farm Report host Erin Fairbanks talks with Ken Jaffe of Slope Farms Beef. Located in the hilly landscape of Catskills, Jeff and his wife Linda pasture raise a herd of all grass-fed cattle. Learn about how production in upstate New York has transitioned over the years from dairy production to cattle (there's so much grass!) and why hydrofracking would be in fact quite destructive of the local economy. This important episode is sponsored by Hearst Ranch.

"I would be out of business if fracking gets into our area. . .from a business point of view my wholesale customers aren't going to be buying meat where there is fracking in close proximity."

--Ken Jaffe on The Farm Report
