“I think that climate change, and the collapse of so many of our ecological systems is the pressure that's going to push human evolution into a new phase. And I think that has to be the story. “
Part 2 of my conversation with Vermont farmer Jesse McDougall ranged a little more widely than just the choice to farm, but that choice shouldn’t be something made within a vacuum. Processing, marketing, aggregation, and broader environmental impacts are all part of the picture in a farm ecosystem. We also talk about Jesse’s use of a new, regeneratively focused funding source that matches up farmers in need with farm supporters seeking to invest their money in growing a healthier world.
This episode is the second part of two.
