A Wealth of Digestible Information
I’m no biologist, just an urban gardener that has a strong passion for growing nutrient dense food for myself and my community. I feel that our country’s agriculture system is not designed for well being of its people, but to put more money in the pockets of agricultural corporations.
The information that John digs up in his interviews is INVALUABLE! I’ve learned so much over the past month taking notes while listening to this podcast.
What I love most about this podcast is that it feels like it comes from a place of humility. There is no sense of pride or effort to push the listener to think a certain way. It is pure information coming from John’s passion and interest in the topics discussed.
Thank you and please keep it up!
Amazing podcast. Covers all things soil health.
Where are the women?
