The Reed Center (Frederick County) will be featured in the episode as well. It is an intentionally designed 150-acre permaculture farm in Middletown that is run by founder Ben Friton. During Earth Day weekend, 500 volunteers planted more than 5,000 trees as part of Friton's plan to reconnect people to nature and show them a different approach to agriculture that replicates naturally occurring forests. Viewers will meet volunteers of different ages and backgrounds, get a tree grafting lesson, and hear from Ben why a farm like The REED Center is so important for environmental and human health.

Mighty Microgreens (Calvert and Cecil Counties) will also be featured in the episode. At My Mustard Seed in St. Leonard, Tresor Thomas grows more than 30 varieties of microgreens out of her family's suburban house while Andy Mussaw grows his micro crops on a macro level at Fresh Source Farms in Elkton. Both urban farmers believe passionately in the health benefits of microgreens as demand continues increase with some estimates projecting global sales of microgreens to reach $3 billion by 2030.
