Backyard Industry

Food and neighborhood DIY (do-it-yourself) projects go hand in hand for Lisa Bralts, who lives in an east Urbana neighborhood with her family and is surrounded by great food, great neighbors, and several gardens, including her own. She's amazed at the possibilities and practices that exist just underneath the surface in Central Illinois - you just have to poke around a little, which she does with great pleasure. 

While BYI has ceased production for radio as of 12/18/2014, all 93 episodes will remain right here, on the WILL website, for your perusal whenever you like - see below! This page will also be updated whenever a new video is released - there are two more in the series, so keep your eyes peeled. 

Lisa continues to write and post photos for BYI via the website - bookmark that thing! She's also ready to engage y'all on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and/or Tumblr

Urban chickens have to live somewhere, right? In this episode of Backyard Industry, Lisa Bralts takes a bike tour to see some of the coolest coops in the neighborhood.
