Restoration Agriculture August 18, 2014
Bill Taylor's guest (Jaye is away so I am soloing this month) is Mark Shepard, who runs New Forest Farm in Southwest Wisconsin and wrote Restoration Agriculture (Acres USA, 2013). He discusses perennial agriculture on a farm scale, and a model for interns that fosters resilience in them; it is very different from most internships in that interns build their own shelter and start their own business using the farm as land base for it.
We were partially preempted by President Obama so the show is abbreviated.
We did not discuss the internship program; the farm runs as a sort of community of businesses working closely with each other as I understand it.
