Set in Colorado, URBAN CONVERSION follows fiscally conservative, yet socially responsible, businessman Rodman Schley as he immerses himself in the sustainability movement. While Rodman enjoys living with all the modern conveniences of the city, his wife Gina wants their family to lead a more eco-friendly, environmentally conscious lifestyle. She suggests moving the family to a simple, low-impact life in a rural setting, and in the spirit of compromise, Rodman and Gina begin to seek ways to bring the country to the city and begin their own "urban conversion." Each episode of URBAN CONVERSION goes beyond the buzzwords to find out, first-hand, all about the "green scene." Over the course of the series, Rodman learns about urban agriculture, backyard beekeeping, farm-to-table eating, alternative fuels and home brewing. URBAN CONVERSION takes the Schley family to Detroit, where urban farming is helping to heal a community, and to Washington D.C., where White House chef Sam Kass provides an educational tour of First Lady Michelle Obama's vegetable garden. Throughout, Rodman lends his common sense and often humorous perspective through his hands-on learning experiences, interviews with experts and profiles of eco-leaders.
