Growing Opportunities

rebroadcast from Sept. 01, 2013

Every once in awhile, you come across a person or organization that really changes how you look at things.

Aaron Reddin, founder of "The One, Inc." and "The Field" recently had that effect on me. "The One" is an organization that reaches out to the unsheltered homeless population in and around Little Rock by delivering food, clothing and supplies in big yellow van. Reddin has recently branched out into "The Field," a farming experiment on a few acres of land where homeless are encouraged to work the land and sell the vegetables, bringing in a paycheck and having access to fresh vegetables. In this episode of the P. Allen Smith show, I get to speak with Reddin about the project, its successes, and the impact he's making on our community.
