Segment 1: Farm/art exchange
Segment 2: Palestine

Reversing Falls Sanctuary in Brooksville has launched the 2014 farm/art exchange to investigate “how humans’ connection to the land is central to the restoration of the health of the earth and our own survival.” It pairs area artists and farmers.
In July, artist Patricia Wheeler and Tinder Hearth bakery owners Lydia Moffet and Tim Semler discussed song, local history, and some of the challenges in operating their business.
Then, from a recording in Beit Sahour, Palestine, in May, Dr. Mazin Qumsiyeh speaks about human rights, government hypocrisy and a failed Israeli military operation.
