In this weeks episode, we have the pleasure to hear from Elvira Dibrigit, author of "Why We Farm." The audio is a not so good because this is my first Skype interview and I still have a lot to learn.
Her book is about the farmers of the Capay Valley in California. Most of the farmers in her book have small holdings and rely on C.S.A.s (community supported agriculture) and farmers markets to sell their produce. This hidden valley is a refreshing glimpse into the past (and the future), before most farmers had to have huge holdings in order to make a profit. Today farmers only make up around 3% of our total population.
This book is all about inspiring you and I to grow something and support those that do.
