Little Rock’s local food movement is growing. Throughout the city vacant lots are transforming into community gardens and local farmers markets are thriving. But how are these ventures, many of them only a year or two old, dealing with unprecedented heat and drought?

Produced for KUAF’s Ozarks at Large program, this radio piece profiles three Little Rock community gardens, exploring the creative ways gardeners are approaching the changing weather.  Listen to the radio piece below and find links and photos from each garden.
