Growing a Greener World

The Spark In Sparta

Season 12, Episode 3 of 13

This tiny Georgia town was one of many that never fully recovered after the boll weevil decimated the cotton industry in the South. But the future is looking brighter after one couple provided an unlikely spark, and accidentally started an urban farming revolution smack in the middle of downtown... from front yard gardens to a mushroom-growing warehouse.
