Celebrate Earth Day with the Rhode to Health podcast!
The Rhode to Health: A Podcast from Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island
The Rhode to Green
We’re talking about how the environment affects your health this earth day. We’ll be visiting Southside Community Land Trust’s City Farm, where guests Jazandra Barros and Jake Stanton are transforming city blocks into farm space. We’re joined by Emily Koo, director of sustainability for the City of Providence, on how climate changes affect vulnerable populations. We talk to Milena Pagan of Little Sister, a café making delicious green practices a priority. And, we’ll speak with Martha Wofford, Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island’s president and CEO, about her time with the EPA and in the White House, fighting for a safe and sustainable environment.
Southside Community Land Trust is having their annual plant sale on May 14-15. Information can be found at their website https://www.southsideclt.org.
