Climate change on a local level

Ecologist Amy Seidl’s new book, Early Spring: An Ecologist and Her Children Wake to a Warming World tackles climate change on a local level.  Also, Burlington Free Press reporter Candy Page talks about efforts to convert food waste into energy.

Guard deployments call for sacrifices from employers, too

The biggest deployment of the Vermont National Guard since World War II will mean challenges for employers and the workplaces the soldiers leave behind.

Also, Candace Page talks about citizen science, and we hear the first in our series My Vermont — essays by our listeners on life in the Green Mountain State.
