Mexico was the first country in the world to develop and implement an earthquake early warning system.

Within seconds of the recent 8.1 quake in southern Mexico, the temblor's location and magnitude were calculated and alerts were sent to neighboring communities.  Geologist Lori Dengler talks about the importance of this effective early warning system.


On this week's Food For Thought, Jennifer Bell talks with Miguel Uribe about growing native foods in the mountains of Michoacan, Mexico.

Miguel's Tierra Viviente Agricultura Organica works with farms throughout the region, promoting organic cultivation and finding markets for the community harvests.
