Jacksonville-based FreshMinistries, Inc. has teamed up with South African Archbishop  Desmond Tutu to make the nonprofit’s aquaponics agricultural initiative global in an effort to fight world hunger.

We speak with Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown and Lenny Curry as they head to the general election in May. We also discuss the results of Tuesday's unitary election with A.G. Gancarski, Folio Weekly and Florida Politics columnist, and Dr. Michael Binder, UNF assistant professor of political science.

Dr. Robert Lee, founder and CEO of Fresh Ministries, joins us with news about their aquaponics project in this week's Going Green segment.


Stark and somber on the outside, FreshMinistries' Eastside Resource Center inside is a bright and bubbling wellspring of hope in a Jacksonville neighborhood more often seen as afflicted with poverty and crime.
