Readers interested in issues related to food, agriculture, and energy may enjoy Harvest Public Media. Based in Kansas City, Missouri, this resource is a public media collaboration that aims to "provide in-depth and unbiased reporting on things like climate change, food safety, biofuel production, animal welfare, water quality, and sustainability." Recent topics covered by Harvest Public Media include the growing popularity of electric cars and what that might mean for the ethanol-producing Corn Belt; a multi-part exploration of the trade war between the US and China; contemporary challenges of rural life, such as hospital closures and the need for better internet access; and an International Space Station experiment designed by Kansas middle-schoolers to find out whether or not mint will grow in space. Multiple new stories are generally added to Harvest Public Media each week, with most of their reports getting their start as radio stories airing on one of their many partner stations, which are then expanded to include an online component. Launched in 2010 by a grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, Harvest Public Media is largely supported by its partner stations operating throughout the Midwestern United States.
