This is the second episode of “Ear to Earth”. It’s a special WRFI News series about how climate change is impacting Tompkins County, in collaboration with the Park Scholars Program at Ithaca College.
In this second piece, there are two segments about farmers in Tompkins County. The first half profiles the nonprofit Groundswell, which works to decrease barriers to farm ownership for underrepresented groups. In the second segment, producers speak with local farmers about how climate change is impacting them. Elena Piëch, Madison Fernandez, Maggie McAden, and Meaghan McElroy produced this episode. WRFI News Director Laura Rosbrow-Telem editorially supervised it. Elena Piëch mixed the theme sequence, using music from Blue Dot Sessions.
