In the first episode of Season Two of Cultivating Communities, Chris, Katie, and summer intern Grace Harville travel to Overton County, Tennessee, to explore both tradition and innovation in agriculture.

Then, Katie, Chris, and Jason talk with two Overton County farmers who have a long history of working with horses and mules.
Featured interviews are with David Holt of Holt Farms, Dr. Levi Holt and Caroline Holt with Green River Embryo Transfer, and local farmers W.J. Staggs and Randall Boswell.
