Interview: UofL alum, LeTicia Marshall, BearFruit Gardening

On this week’s Sustainability Now!, your host, Justin Mog (UofL's Assistant to the Provost for Sustainability Initiatives), gets his hands dirty with LeTicia Marshall.

LeTicia is a native Kentuckian, a Mom, a UofL alum, owner of BearFruit & Grow, LLC, and the unstoppable force behind the BearFruit Gardening community YouTube channel & Facebook group. On July 31st, she released a video announcing that "it's official, I am an urban farmer!” LeTicia is so passionate about urban farming and reclaiming our spaces to grow food because she has seen how it results in eating cleaner, healthier food, building community, and improving our mental health. On this week’s show, she tells us about her urban farm project and how you can support it!
