Hancock County was the most populous county in Georgia in 1800, and cotton was its thriving industry. A century later, the boll weevil decimated that industry.
The small town of Sparta, Georgia was one of many that never quite fully recovered. But the future is looking brighter after one couple provided an unlikely spark and accidentally started an urban farming revolution right in the middle of downtown – from front yard gardens to a mushroom-growing warehouse.
This week is an encore episode of a powerful story featuring Robert and Suzy Currey and their vision to use farming and freshly grown food to lift up an entire community.
For more details on this episode, you can read the show notes from the original airing.
