Intersection: Fall Harvest In Central Florida
Fall in Florida means produce. Vegetables like squash, okra and kale are showing up on restaurant plates and at farmers market stalls.
Intersection visits the Tomazin family farm - which has been supplying Volusia county with vegetables for generations- and talks to 'barefoot farmers' Bill and Paul Tomazin.
We also go into the kitchen of DeLand's Cress restaurant, where and Chef Hari Pulapaka cooks some seasonal bounty… and talks about what farm to table dining really means.
And for city residents who like the idea of vegetable gardening but lack the time- and the green thumb- how about turning your yard over to volunteers?
We talk to an Orlando group that’s combining urban yards and bicycle power under the name Fleet Farming.
Chris Castro, Michele Bumbier and Clayton Louis Ferrara explain how they're linking up a network of 'farmlets' to grow produce in the city.
