Controlling Wild Horses, Irrigation Revival, Regen

Season 9, Episode 5 of 5

Breeding quickly in a land without many predators, the West's wild horse herds are out of control, damaging water sources and over-grazing natural habitat. With new water rights and a major irrigation project under construction, Arizona's Gila River Indian Community is reviving an agricultural heritage that sustained them for centuries before white settlers arrived. An imaginative project in Minnesota explores how small farming operations with chickens and small plots of crops can provide livelihoods for families using "regenerative" practices.
