It is climate change that drives MARTIN CRAWFORD. “All our growing systems should be storing carbon; plants and soil are currently the only way of taking carbon out of the air.” Forest gardens are the system that stores the most carbon while yielding lots of crops. Martin’s UIT Cambridge published book, Creating a Forest Garden, should find itself on your living room table to study and browse through the incredibly beautiful drawings and photos. But beware! Next you will find yourself out in the yard deciding where to plant your first fruit tree. He continues his research at the Agroforestry Research Trust in Devon, England.

Not unlike many parts of the world, the Hawaiian Islands are home to many farmers and ranchers who follow nature’s lead for a sustainable future using regenerative methods. I was fortunate to speak with:

From herding 10 cows to owning the 1st organic dairy in New York, SIOBHAN GRIFFIN, followed nature’s “dots” leading her into regenerative and holistic animal management in New Zealand. Today Siobhan shares the wealth of her knowledge when it comes to grazing management techniques and how to build topsoil. https://www.facebook.com/next.level.grazing/

P MARK LOPEZ  took over his 3rd generational conventional family operation and he moved the farm back to a pastured cows farm. Given his veterinarian background, Mark knows that the healthiest cows produce the healthiest milk and healthy cows live on pastures. http://www.tamans.com/wholesome-dairy. http://www.tamans.com/wholesome-dairy

Research into seaweed as a climate change solution has increased significantly over the past decade, but these discoveries are not new.  Professor of marine botany and kelp farmer, DR. LOUIS DRUEHL, known for over 40 years as the seaweed guru, has said “All of a sudden, people have discovered seaweed, they’ve discovered us.”

Hi Everyone,

We had a snafu at KGNU, the station where I air tributaries, last week so in order to keep in sync with that I am running my podcast for July’s cultivated audio which was posted July 31st. Three brilliant folks practicing regenerative agriculture in England speaking about their specialties:

ROSIE BALL – manages over 300 acres with cattle, sheep and pigs at Fowlsecombe Farm

CALLUM EDGE – a 5th generation butcher of grass fed animals – Edge and Son Butchers opened in 1844!

SALLY LEE – a beyond organic turkey farmer, producing clean and more importantly, loved poultry

Part 2 with Mr. Buhner next week!!

The pursuit of happiness…..

Corporate America is out to replace your happiness with pleasure and biochemically supported marketing is hacking the body and mind UNLESS, unless we pay attention.  The Hacking of the American Mind, written by ROBERT LUSTIG MD, shares the much needed insight to drive ‘their” poison away…

The Amazon is home to too many things to write is this small place. That being said, it is our home, it is where diversity springs forth to the rest of our planet and it is where ethnobotanist and President of The Amazon Conservation Team, MARK PLOTKIN, chooses to see the world. His latest book is The Amazon What Everyone Needs To Know.

We interviewed 20 years ago when he wrote The Tales of the Shaman’s Apprentice. Still a brilliant read, it is only eclipsed by his latest book which REALLY tells the tale…
