  The annual Lake Superior Harvest Festival at the Bayfront Park is just around the corner.  We kick off KUMD's Sustainability Week with a conversation with Claire Hintz, the director of Lake Superior Harvest Festival, about what will be at the festival, notably tiny houses, an innovative and popular new way to practice sustainability.

The woman, who had been homeless for ten years and living in a shelter, was entertaining her daughter, and the pair had plans to head up the shore to pick agates.
