This week on We Dig Plants, Alice and Carmen examine Zone 11 of the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map, which includes both Hawaii and Florida.

First, we’re joined by Brandon von Damitz, co-founder of Big Island Coffee Roasters in Hawaii. After the break, we meet James Jiler of Urban GreenWorks, an organization which provides environmental programs and green job training to incarcerated men and women, youth remanded by court to drug rehab and at-risk high-school youth in low-income neighborhoods.
