Episode 23: Harold Brown - The Longest Journey Begins with the First Step
Harold Brown ("Farmer Brown")is the founder of Farm Kind (FarmKind.org), an organization "where everyone can come to learn about issues concerning our food, how it is produced, and the many complex connections it has to our world and our lives." Farmer Brown was born on a family farm and spent half of his life in agriculture, including three years working in the dairy industry.
He devotes his time to FarmKind, which is intended to be a resource for farmers who want to make the transition from animal based to plant based agriculture, for consumers to learn a different perspective on how food is produced, to help those who desire to reconnect with the land and become farmers, to support local food production, environmental and social justice issues, the rights of all living beings to be co-cohabitants of this planet, and how these things have everything to do with creating the peaceful world that all beings desire. Learn all about Farmer Brown and his incredible organization on our show!
