A program that teaches young people how to grow and sell produce is taking root in Rochester. It's called "Rochester Roots" and it's happening at a half-acre farm at Clara Barton School No. 2, which is located in one of the city's poorest neighborhoods. The program teaches students farming skills and how to market their harvest for sale as part of the Roots' Urban Farm Share. It's the first of its kind in our region. We'll hear from the group's executive director.
Plus, a local group celebrates the professional achievements of African-American women. We'll hear from members of the Rochester Genesee Valley Club of the National Association of Negro Business and Professional Women's Clubs, Inc.
Finally, honoring Rochester's oldest African American-owned business.
