The LSU AgCenter fosters agricultural, engineering and scientific programs across the state. On this week's Louisiana Eats!, we go across the state to hear how Ag agent Grace Peterson is connecting Shreveport residents with regional food.

We'll also cultivate tomatoes with Bobby Fletcher near the Mississippi River and float downstream with Dr. John Bell to learn how the Louisiana oyster can help rebuild coastal wetlands. We travel from the Gulf of Mexico to Shreveport's urban farms on this week's Louisiana Eats!
