This week, a special encore edition of Under the Radar with Callie Crossley:

The future of farming: From crops in a container to sustainable kelp farms

Digging in the dirt and pulling up weeds is so last century. Whatever you thought about farming is being reimagined, with a new generation plowing the industry into the future.

Bren Smith, executive director and co-founder of GreenWave, a nonprofit that supports ocean farmers. Bren is also the owner of Thimble Island Ocean Farm and author of "Eat Like A Fish: My Adventures Farming the Ocean to Fight Climate Change."

Jon Friedman, chief operating officer and co-founder of Freight Farms, a Boston-based AgTech company that has spearheaded 'container farming.'
