Urban Foraging Guests: Tom Smith, PhD, Associate Professor of Plant and Wildlife Sciences, Brigham Young University; Neil Reed, Biological Science Technician, Bryce Canyon National Park, BYU Alum What is foraging? Not dumpster-diving. Real-life foraging for edibles growing all around us – nuts, berries, flowers, shrubs. There’s foraging to be done in suburbs and big cities, believe it or not. And we’re going to find out how with a couple of experts. The End of Orphanages Guests: Jini Roby, JD, MSW, Professor of Family, Home, and Social Sciences, School of Social Work, Brigham Young University; Cindy Packard, Founder, Care for Life There’s someone in your neighborhood, church or Facebook feed headed on a service trip over the holiday break. They’ll spend time in an orphanage somewhere like Cambodia or Malawi painting walls or doing repairs. They’ll play with the children and post photos online filled with hugs and smiles. And the fundraising pleas will come, too. There are, after all, more than 150 million orphans worldwide who need our help.  But what if all of these orphanage efforts and donations are misguided? What if they’re actually doing more harm than good?
