Is our current agriculture model sustainable? How long can we rely on fossil fuels for machines, pesticides and herbicides? Are heavily centralized production methods a weakness when the system breaks down? Are genetically modified crops and crop monocultures healthy for us or the environment?
 
The answers may be growing in Washington DC, where our nation's food and farming laws are made. A group of women has launched a network of organic urban farms that will survive extreme weather and bring affordable food to the nation's food ghettos.
 
Free Speech Radio News DC correspondent Alice Ollstein digs deep into the issue of urban farming in our Labor Day documentary. She's talking to farmers, food justice advocates, Congress members, and climate experts.
 
But she needs your help.
