Planting and nurturing your own food can be hard work—especially from a canal boat.

WPSU radio producer Cynthia Berger and her husband, environmental educator Bill Carlsen, embarked last month on a year-long sustainable journey around America’s Great Loop.

On their 41-foot by 10-foot solar-powered boat, they have a big pot full of flowers and a couple of window boxes of herbs. Cynthia says, “It’s quite a treat to cook a spaghetti dinner and liven things up with a little fresh basil and oregano.”
