Then, with the catch in hand, prepare a feast with local farm workers who strive to maintain their traditions and culture while doing the hard labor of sustainable farming. Further up the coast, at Magnolia Farm in Oregon, learn the story of naturally raised lamb and a feast to celebrate it. In the Victory Garden, Roger checks on the endives and makes mulch; Chef Marian creates an artichoke appetizer.

Back at the Victory Garden, Roger plants eggplant and Chef Marian makes a Chinese cabbage salad.
