There's a Portugese saying, we learn, that the happiest one can be in life is in the first year of marriage, and the week after you butcher a pig. Today: how we grow, sustain, and invent ways to provide our nourishment. Agriculture as it can be, inspired to rise above the degradations of our environment by the current administration. You'll be enlightened, entertained, and elevated by Sedge's three guests.
If the earth is to continue serving us with its bounty, listen in:
NOVELLA CARPENTER, author of Farm City: The Education of an Urban Farmer.
LISA HAMLITON, whose book Deeply Rooted: Unconventional Farmers in the Age of Agribusiness, depicts growers as stewards of the land and their pace of life.
JANE S. SMITH, author of The Garden of Invention: Luther Burbank and the Business of Breeding Plants. How did this man using trial and error and intuition develop botanical marvels that improve our lives.
Mike Greensill whose farm-to-piano playing is bio-dynamic.
