With the first day of spring around the corner, this week we'll get outdoors, get our hands dirty, get some sun — even a bit of all three. We'll get a jump on the growing season with a man who started gardening as a young sprout. We'll see how a children's theater in Maryland is bringing Jamaica to the stage, with a world-premiere musical featuring the songs of Bob Marley. And we'll test our seaworthiness — or at least our riverworthiness — as we head out on a local waterway to study a vanishing fish.

[Music: "Every Little Bit Hurts" by John Davis from Title Tracks / "Spring Cleaning" by Girl From Mars from Planet Swing]
