Last week, the Coca-Cola Company unveiled an ambitious plan to recycle a bottle or can for every drink it sells. It’s the latest move by the Atlanta-based soda giant to address environmental concerns tied to its production. Will this plan work? We talk with environmental historian Bart Elmore, author of the book, “Citizen Coke: The Making of Coca-Cola Capitalism.”

Thousands of marchers convened in Atlanta this past weekend to mark the one-year anniversary of the Women’s March. This year movement leaders shifted focus to being inclusive for communities of color and across class lines. We talk with Nora Benavidez, attorney and activist. She’s a cofounder of the Georgia Alliance for Social Justice, which organized Atlanta’s march. Also with us is Rebecca Watts Hull, professor at Georgia Tech’s school of History and Sociology.

Coke's clean up, protest movements and urban farming.

Many Georgia neighborhoods are stranded in food deserts, where fresh edibles are few and far between. One potential remedy is urban farming. Across the state, farmers and community leaders grow food in the neighborhoods that need it most. And it’s getting easier than ever to start growing if you want to make a difference. We talk about this with Rashid Nuri, Urban Agriculturalist and Founder of the ‘Truly Living Well’ Center. We also talk with Danny Glover, Founder and CEO of One South Community Development Corporation in Macon.

What does a community garden sound like? The Good Shepherd Community Church in Atlanta has been going strong for years. And if you’re near the church on weekends, you’ll probably see church members spending their weekend outdoors, tending the garden. On Second Thought producer Sean Powers stopped by the church, and brings us an audio postcard.
