  • My Home NC: F.A.R.M. Cafe — Executive Chef Renee Boughman saw people struggling with food insecurity in the North Carolina high country near her hometown of Boone, and wanted to make a difference. Using her talents as a chef, she rallied others to start a restaurant that is completely "pay what you can." F.A.R.M Cafe stands for Feed All Regardless of Means, and it's a place where everyone from millionaires to homeless people routinely sit next to each other to enjoy a meal where most of the ingredients are locally sourced. (Watauga Co.) 
  • Duck Dance Farm — A Burnsville family has taken on a unique brand of farming with animals that you may not find on a typical farm. Duck Dance Farm raises rare species of ducks and also provides a destination for campers, hikers and anyone who just wants to enjoy nature. (Yancey Co.) 
  • NC Science Now: The Pythons Are Coming — Davidson College professors study how pythons, an invasive species, are devastating the Everglades ecosystem and could come as far north as Washington, DC. (Mecklenburg Co.) 
  • Teamworks Communications — One of the most influential ways to maintain leadership in an organization is good communication. And maintaining that good communication is difficult when team members are scattered across multiple locations and on different schedules. That is why one former Duke Football player developed an application for team communication. Jeff Smith explains how the mobile friendly application is helping universities and professional sports teams communicate. (Durham and Orange Counties)
