Episode 4

This month, we see how Carroll and Grayson County are growing niche products–pumpkins and Christmas trees–in order to grow their economies, and our expert tip comes from Wayne Waldrop, lending manager for Virginia Community Capital, which offers loans to companies involved in the fresh-food industry.

We return to St. Paul, where mayor Kyle Fletcher extols the benefits of his town’s location on the Clinch River, and interview Jeff Mann, a professor of creative writing in the College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences at Virginia Tech. We also take a quick trip to Richlands to ask three questions of mayor Jan White.
