TUC Radio: Soil is a Living Being - Dr. Christine Jones and Farmer Gabe Brown, Segment 1

4 weeks 2 days ago
In the preceding TUC Radio program Dr. Christine Jones was first introduced. Here is the self-contained conclusion of her presentation to Fibershed. She is an internationally known ground-cover and soils ecologist. She works with landholders to increase biodiversity and biological activity. They sequester carbon, activate soil nutrient cycles, restore water balance, improve productivity and create new topsoil. Gabe Brown first started working alongside his father-in-law on the family farm in North Dakota. When a series of crop disasters put Brown and his wife, Shelly, in desperate financial straits, they started - from 1993 on - experimenting with a new type of farming: regenerative agriculture. Gabe Brown is now a pioneer of the soil-health movement and has been named one of the twenty-five most influential agricultural leaders in the United States. CREDITS: Thanks to Fibershed for the use of their podcast. Fibershed is based in San Geronimo in West Marin, California. They connect fiber producers, mainly sheep ranchers and those who are collecting and growing plants for natural dyes with those who spin and weave textiles. Their workshop with Dr. Christine Jones took place on June 20, 2019. The excerpts of a conversation with the regenerative farmer and Chelsea Green author Gabe Brown come from an interview by Kelly Brownell, Professor of Public Policy at Duke University in North Carolina. They spoke on January 9, 2020 about the “Desperate Need for Regenerative Agriculture”. The book by Gabe Brown is entitled Dirt to Soil, One Family’s Journey into Regenerative Agriculture.
