Part of doing right, is cutting out the big agri-food machine that is killing people, the soil, and the atmosphere.

In this week's program, we consider a late winter remedy: growing food under lights. Our guest is Philip Be'er, an inventor and agri-tech from Home Harvest Farms in Vancouver, Canada.

We start with a show and tell experiment right here in the Radio Ecoshock studio.

Later I pass on tips from my own brief career under the lights, plus a conversation with small-scale, low-tech farmer and anthropologist, Walter Haugen. His new book is "The Laws of Physics Are On My Side".

With both guests, we discuss how climate change will make agriculture more difficult, the coming rise in food prices,and what to do.

We begin with a slice from an ode to the beat poet Neil Cassady, by the Australian band Pagan Love Cult. At the end of this show, you'll bet their full song "Everything I Know".

Sun glasses on. Flick the switch. This is radio that grows.
