A GROWING PASSION is a lifestyle program that explores San Diego County’s agriculture and horticulture activities as an expression of this growing earth-friendly movement.

From backyard food production to major horticultural growers, from low water landscapes to sustainable practices around the home and in the garden, we tell stories about the natural and man-made landscapes that shape the social, cultural, environmental and economic interests of our community.

We celebrate how San Diego grows. The series is hosted by Nan Sterman.

Host Nan Sterman enjoys lunch with preschoolers in Oceanside eating produce grown at there to supplement a healthy lunch program.

"With Food And Justice For All" - Food deserts have become all too common in urban areas, and with them, residents are left without options for fresh, nutritional foods.

Children miss the opportunity to develop good cooking and eating habits. Obesity has become an epidemic.

We visit some innovative projects that address this challenge by teaching children and adults to grow food, about nutrition, and about cooking and eating fresh, healthful edibles.
