Libby Patterson, filmmaker George Langworthy, and several of their colleagues call in to suggest environmentally friendly ways to leave a lasting legacy.
While growing up in Ohio, Libby Patterson, now popularly known as the Perfume Doctor, participated in the first Earth Day celebration in 1970 planting trees. Today’s show covers Earth Day topics such as collective efforts to reverse the disappearance of bee populations (colony collapse disorder), successful vertical gardening in cities, and alternative food production methods like permaculture and aquaponics.

Colony collapse disorder
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Colony collapse disorder is a phenomenon in which worker bees from a beehive or European honey bee colony abruptly disappear. While such disappearances have occurred throughout the history of apiculture, the term colony collapse disorder was first applied to a drastic rise in the number of disappearances of Western honey bee colonies in North America in late 2006.
