Savor follows the food and the farmers, with Rogue Farm Corps


May is famous for flowers, but plenty of other things come shooting out of the ground this time of year. And quite a few of them are good to eat.

We celebrate food and the arrival of spring greens in this month's edition of Savor, our food segment. Will Smith, food stylist and segment producer, rounded up Rogue Farm Corps for this round.

Bobbi Wilson is the regional director for the program, helping people get skills working on farms, and helping existing farmers find a new generation to take over.

We get an overview of the various programs and a chance to sample Will's recipe of the month as Savor unfolds.
