River restoration affects more than just the natural environment. On today's episode of What Doesn't Kill You, learn about one of the most essential restoration projects in the country right now, The San Joaquin River Restoration Program, as host Katy Keiffer chats with Monty Schmitt, Senior Scientist with the Natural Resources Defense Council and the San Joaquin River Restoration Project Manager, Water Program. The SJRRP is a direct result of a Settlement reached in September 2006 on an 18-year lawsuit to provide sufficient fish habitat in the San Joaquin River below Friant Dam near Fresno, California, by the U.S. Departments of the Interior and Commerce, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), and the Friant Water Users Authority (FWUA). The Settlement received Federal court approval in October 2006. Federal legislation was passed in March 2009 authorizing Federal agencies to implement the Settlement. Learn more about the project, the river and all of the issues that surround it. This program was brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery.

School gardens are now being embraced nationwide, as is farm-to-school. But school garden-to-cafeteria? It's what's coming next--well-established in some districts, in fact, which offer valuable resources to beginners. Concerned about food safety? Funding? Whether or not to buy student-grown or accept it as a donation? Is it worth the trouble--does it interest children in eating more produce, trying new fruits and veggies? The nation's two leading experts, from Colorado and Oregon, discuss all this and more. This program was brought to you by White Oak Pastures.

"Everyone along the supply chain of school food should get their fair equal prices. There are costs to school gardens. Right now districts don't pay for much of those costs." [18:00]
