Welcome to the Table.  It's not my table, or your table.  It's everyone's table.  But, not everyone has the same kind of access to "the table." Each episode is an interview with an entrepreneurial instigator who has created their own food or hunger focused project to help end hunger in their community. In addition to learning from people who have already scaled the learning curve, we also offer coaching resources for making your own food or hunger focused project more effective. If you'd like to help make this project more effective, consider joining the Patron's Table at Patreon.com/healingspringsacres

    Rick Burnette - "The tropical fringe..."

    Practical wisdom from a practiced expert.  Rick Burnette has worked in sustainable local scale agriculture projects all over the globe. He's learned enough to listen more. Hear how his work fits into efforts to help end hunger among farm workers in Immokalee, FL in this third interview of three about the work in the Immokalee community.

    Rick is one of the founders of Cultivate Abundance and they partner with Misión Peniel to offer collaborative neighborliness to increase food security, food solidarity, and food sovereignty for the migrant farm workers who share their community.

    This episode also includes some podcast related updates that I hope will be helpful.  As always thanks for listening!

Inspiring, informative and entertaining

Don’s new podcast is grassroots, humble and authentic. You will be filled with hope that people are tackling hunger in their community, educated about growing food in all manner of environments and entertained by good humor and wonderful stories. Don does not get in the way of his guests. He lets their expertise shine through. I look forward to each weekly episode.

Joining the battle!

The work of Healing Springs Acres - and Don Durham specifically - to battle food deserts and scarcity is compelling, inspiring, and challenging. This podcast - Welcome To The Table - takes it to a new level. Hearing these stories helps me realize that there practical, realistic, and altogether doable ways for ME to help end hunger. Thanks, Don, and count me in!
