ripening pomegranates on a local tree

In this edition of "Beyond the Furrows", our series covering farmworkers on the Central Coast, we'll introduce you to Maria. She's been on an 18 year quest for US citizenship. “Dangerous Air” is a collaborative investigation, and answers the question: How much wildfire smoke have we been breathing and what are the health risks? You’ll learn about new legislation requiring grocery stores and food distributors to donate unused edible food instead of wasting it. Author Dorothea Deley talks about her book “Saying Good-bye to Your Dear Dog”. And finally, Father Ian learns to pick and prepare fresh pomegranates in Playing With Food.
