Let’s talk about how to be more climate resilient and address the climate crisis focusing on connecting with land and agroecology. Today’s show features:

  • Marisha Auerbach of Permaculture Rising. We talk about how to deal with the summer drought and smoke from the wild fires, as well as give some useful tips on how to conserve water, increase soil health, and deal with climate anxiety.
  • "Farming is Medicine: Transforming our World through Agroecology" a keynote address by Dr Rupa Marya from the January 2021 EcoFarm conference.  Dr Marya draws on data from the health sciences, history, ecology and soil science to argue that agroecology can help us reimagine our future and our health.
