    Using No-Till to Maximize Your Production!

    Plowing and tilling has become such a part of farming and gardening that many of us can't imagine how you would prepare a garden or grow crops any other way. But in this episode I share how caring for the soil God's way and mimicing his models in creation can have great benefit and result in greater profit.

    Sustainable on 1/4 Acre?

    Sustainable on 1/4 Acre?

    How much land do you need to have a profitable farm operation? On this podcast episode I share some lessons we have learned that enabled our 1/4 acre market garden to be more profitable than when we cultivated more land. Whether you have access to a lot of land or just a little, I hope you will learn something from this session that will help you more fully utilize what you have, be more profitable, and have greater JOY!

    Ham Radio, Resilient Community Communication

    Ham Radio, Resilient Community Communication

    We live in an era of communication unprecedented in recent history. Through our phones we can literally talk to people around the globe anytime we want for practically free! But as we wrap up our series on preparing for times of crisis, I want to share briefly about developing an alternative communication option that we can use for our families and communities. In this episode I give some personal updates before describing a little about Ham (or Amateur) Radio and why my wife and I recently got our licenses and several radios in order to have a more resilient form of local communication.

Refreshing

I recently started listening to the Redeeming the Dirt podcast find it refreshing. I am a missionary in Liberia where I am developing a church planter training center and permaculture model farm. This is the only podcast that I am aware of that melds regenerative agricultural approaches with God’s command to be stewards of His creation.

A Welcome Perspective!

I’m so thankful for the distinctly and unapologetically Christian look at agriculture that Noah takes with this show. It’s refreshing, encouraging, and instructive for anyone who wants to better connect their faith in God with their farming, homesteading, and gardening.

A practical faith based Podcast!

This Podcast is a great addition to Noah’s work and book! Honestly looking at the role of Agriculture in the life of Christian farmers and agrarians.
