EPISODE 1: Chartreuse and Forrest Fleishauer of Produce Point

Forrest Ward Fleishauer is one talkative cat. Especially when he's talking about the earth and what comes from it and how we live on it. We've taken a trip into the greenhouses at Produce Point, Forrest's vertical hydroponic production of chemical free herbs & greens, to discuss sustainability on a grand scale....like let's say the next 10,000 years. Are you humans meant to even live sustainably? Is our rise or fall as a species within our control? Should we even try to mess with it? And, finally, can we have a bite of this amazing lettuce you grow? All of these questions will be answered as we sip the ultimate herbal connection...Chartreuse Green Label! Talk about sustainable: in the Chartreuse Mountains of France, an order of monks have produced this liqueur for over 400 years and the recipe is still a closely guarded secret. How dey do dat!!?  It's an interesting conversation- make yourself a cocktail from the list below and take a visit to Produce Point!
